Reviews

In this poignant journey across the borders we inhabit, the borders / we inherit, the author finds a history that she makes ours, as well as her own. Martha Collins, author, "Blue Front""
These poems are imagined out of ash script written on walls of a detention building that burned down and took the record with it. Teow Lim Goh would have those voices back, voices from the barracks, voices at the gates, on sea crossings to China, on bay crossings to San Francisco, amid riots and in cold examination rooms, in a brothel, in a prison shower, in rooms of privilege and power, challenging readers to navigate layered tone and inter-subjectivity, all of it staged at the theatre of lost history, recovered. Chris Ransick, author, "A Return to Emptiness""
