Reviews

Bold and unapologetic.... Ranging from clear, radiant lyrics to experimental, subversive pieces.--Elizabeth Lund
Chin delivers a wealth of riches: jokes and puns; poems as blues songs, mythic allegories, or letters; poems in translation and poems influenced by received forms.--Maya Phillips
Throughout this collection, a great showcase of her oeuvre, Chin demonstrates her mastery of the English language and her fluency in others, her impressive visions of global history, her colloquial humor, and her commitment to speaking truth to power.--Kathryn Pratt Russell
