This article examines the turn to the everyday in contemporary literature from Vietnam by Phan Thị Vàng Anh, Dương Phương Vinh, Nguyễn Ngọc Tư, and other writers born in the 1960s and 1970s. I analyze formal, aesthetic, ethical, and sociopolitical aspects of the literature, distinguishing post-Đổi Mới from Đổi Mới works and suggesting ways to understand the former within local and global comparative literary frameworks.
