Dells short stories are not about battles, blood, gore, or angst. They are about participants of the war other than grunts: war profiteers, disc jockeys, rock stars, landladies, pedi-cab drivers, movie stars, pickpockets, beggars, journalists, celebrity tourists, and other REMFs.

Irreverent, outrageous, cynical, satirical, intelligent, and insightful are a few of the words used to describe A Saigon Party (And Other Vietnam War Short Stories).Author Bio: Diana Dell was born in 1946 in East Vandergrift, Pennsylvania and graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in journalism. In 1970, after her brother was killed in the Mekong Delta, she went to Vietnam as a civilian with USO. There she was a program director in Cam Ranh Bay and director of public relations in Saigon, where she hosted USO Showtime, a daily program on American Forces Vietnam Network (AFVN) radio.

Upon leaving Vietnam, she worked in Europe for a year as publicity director at the Frankfurt USO and two years as a freelance writer and photographer in Athens and Madrid. After owning an advertising agency in Massachusetts for 10 years, she taught Vietnam War history and journalism classes at Tampa College. Diana divides her writing time between Boston and Clearwater, Florida. She is also the author of Memories Are Like Clouds, a childhood memoir set in the 1950s.
