Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this third collection, award-winning poet Adrienne Su reflects deeply about the circumstances in which people are forced to remake themselves: as parents, as immigrants, as people whose marriages have ended, as people who’ve wound up in a place they never intended to settle.

From “Breakup”:

Another ending finds its place

among novels, lives, summers

that fled, but this kind has a way

of getting filed under failure:

yes, the relationship failed,

if to fail is to fail to endure.

Synopsis:

Lyrical poems about trying to have it all . . . but not all at the same time.
