Publishers Weekly starred review for Jennifer S. Cheng’s Moon: Letters, Maps, Poems (TS 2018)

 

We’re delighted that Jennifer S. Cheng’s Moon: Letters, Maps, Poems (TS 2018) has received a starred review at Publishers Weekly.

Here’s a snippet:

In this exhilarating exploration, Cheng fashions an alt-epic for the 21st century, upending received ideas about poetic form and constructing from the debris a hybrid guide for an age of diaspora and displacement…. Experiences of unmooring and unsettling call for new maps; Cheng’s cartography works by myth and lyric, supposition and premonition, breathtaking abstraction and heartbreaking specificity…. As visionary as it is practical, Cheng’s rich and glorious book is a record of this precarious moment, a “brief and eternal standstill of a half-sunk world, half-rebirthed.”
