• Cha: An Asian Literary Journal-Book Review

    Sometimes I do “Google” myself to see if I’m visible.  Sometimes I am surprised that someone has reviewed one of my books.  I appreciate and learn from book reviews.  Michael Tsang made the following comment, something I had never thought about:

    The best poem of the collection is the second last one, “That’s Where She is Now.” For the first time, there is not an “I” on the entire page, and the poem goes beyond the first-person narration of the other works, offering immense imagination and reflection…”

    My work, for better or worse, does focus on the “I”-the me me me me me- because I write memoir, but I hadn’t recognized that I actually departed from first person in at least one poem!  To me, that means I, unknowingly perhaps, reached at least a small amount of incite into my life.

    Thank you Michael Tsang for your incite into my work.
