Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Nguyen] shares such a streetwise feminism, keeping the edge and making it something you can dance to."—The Poetry Project

Clear-eyed and grounded, Hoa Nguyen performs a hook and snare on what it means to be a twenty-first century human in the nearly ego-less space of these chiseled yet spacious poems.

It's not a time to run

I wear soft shoes

and it took a long time

to walk here

Hoa Nguyen is the co-founder of Skanky Possum. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Synopsis:

Large-hearted, hip, and hooky poems as sculpted as they are sensory.

About the Author

Born in the Mekong Delta and raised in the DC area, Hoa Nguyen studied Poetics at New College of California in San Francisco where she earned an MFA. She is the author of three full-length collections of poetry including As Long As Trees Last (forthcoming from Wave Books, 2012), Hecate Lochia (Hot Whiskey Press, 2009) and Your Ancient See Through (Subpress, 2002). Her poetry has been collected in eight anthologies including Days I Moved Through Ordinary Sound: The Teachers of WritersCorps in Poetry and Prose (City Lights, 2009), The Best of Fence (Fence Books, 2009), For the Time Being: A Bootstrap Anthology (Bootstrap Books, 2008), Black Dog, Black Night: Contemporary Vietnamese Poetry (Milkweed Editions, 2008), and Not for Mothers Only (Fence Books, 2007). With the poet Dale Smith, Nguyen founded Skanky Possum, a small press journal of poetry and poetics, publishing contemporary poets such as Amiri Baraka, Alice Notley, Linh Dinh, Kenward Elmslie and Eileen Myles. In 2002, as editor of Best American Poetry, Robert Creeley selected poems by four poets that were published in issue 6 of Skanky Possum. Nguyen has been invited to perform her work, act as poet in residence, and lecture on poetry for universities, conferences and literary organizations, including, most recently, the University of Texas, Austin, TX; Washington State University, Pullman, WA; the Charles Olson Centenary Conference, Vancouver, BC; Buffalo State, Buffalo, NY; the Association for Asian American Studies Conference, Austin, TX; Naropa University, Boulder, CO; and the Belladonna Conference, New York, NY.
