Poetry. Fiction. "KINGDOM COME is a big, imaginative feast for the senses, wry with humor and sizzling with sexuality. Liu's immersive style, each sentence a bracing plunge into a liquefied language, a lake, has only deepened and clarified since the early poems that made his name, and the four sequences of KINGDOM COME show him at the very peak of his form."—Kevin Killian
