Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. The second Poet Laureate of San Francisco (following Lawrence Ferlinghetti), Janice Mirikitani is a poet of daily exchanges and lyrical observations. However, as she demonstrates in her Inaugural Address printed at the beginning of LOVE WORKS, her lyricism does not cause her to shy away from the politics of poetry: "I understood the power of the word, the power of language perhaps most graphically when my mother broke her silence of forty years about the World War II internment of 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry...She testified before the Commission on Redress in 1981 and sent her testimony to me in the mail. It was as if in finding her voice, she illumined the path to discover mine." The thirty new Mirikitani poems in LOVE WORKS will likewise illumine a path for readers of this open, lucid poet.

Synopsis:

Poems and prose by San Francisco's second Poet Laureate.

Synopsis:

This impressive collection brings together Mirikitani’s strongest poems on a diversity of subjects: the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II, the fragility and challenges of family relationships, and the quest by people at the margins of society to claim justice, bread and dignity. Also included is her long inaugural essay in which she discusses how poetry can connect people and transform lives.

Janice Mirikitani is the author of three books of poetry. She has, over the past 35 years, created and directed programs for young people and people in need at Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district.
