Cathy Park Hong, one of our most startlingly original poets, draws together individual voices at odds with the world-voices that sing their wonder and terror. from Market Forces Are Brighter than the Sun My Aleph, My Grand Dame, My Turks frozen in time! Haroon, Kadoori, Sassoon With your bolts of canary silk sheared and sold down Shangdu river alongside a wedding of gamblers betting in a vintage sampan. Barges of creaky banquet halls, spit out your prawn tail in this ramekin!
