Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. California Interest. In her debut collection, Christine offers the rare experience of watching a mind mine the body, the psyche, and the interwoven histories of family. These searching poems are equally full of wisdom and unanswerable questions. Brutally honest, tender, and fierce, No's poems lay bare the pain of personal discovery, the hope of a future free of harm, and the struggle to survive.
