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”:

Synopsis:
