Author: Cathy Park Hong
Staff Pick – So says…
Poet Cathy Park Hong weighs every word with profound precision in this essayistic intervention into racialisation in North America. Looking critically and compassionately at and from her family's story in the context of LA in the 1990s, Hong elucidates faultlines and possibilities for solidarity. The chapter on fellow poet Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, in particular, reverberates with particularity and passion.
