AND OTHER RIVERS
by Lee Jing-Jing
published by Math Paper Press
In And Other Rivers, lives are carved open from tip to tail and laid out for display. A child watches her father perform a lunar new year ritual. First-generation migrants swim for shore. A woman dives into fast flowing water. This collection of poetry is about fluid longings, and about the searches and meanderings one embarks on to fulfil those longings. And Other Rivers starts close to home, winds its way across foreign landscapes, and finds its way back again.
“Entering the world of And Other Rivers is like a opening a door on a parallel landscape where all the insidious methods of love and violence flower with a strange, dangerous beauty. Lee’s vivid and searching poetics, fluid and sure-footed, mark her out as a poet of delicate and distinctive authority.”
