Nguyen Chi Thien - the toughest SOB poet that ever lived.

Nguyen Chi Thien Obituary | The Economist: "From 1995 he managed to get shelter in America. He lived humbly in Little Saigon in Orange County, California, lodging with fellow countrymen.".

Read the entire thing. He won an international poetry award in 1985, but nothing more. No Nobel, no Pulitzer.
