Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. "I was wandering around the house of poetry and this book showed me to a door I didn't know existed. Now, on the other side, nothing is the same. By layering and arranging found art, original drawings, washi, photos, paint, and bits of leaf, Naoko Fujimoto has created a stunning contemporary emaki engaged with Japanese heritage, the horrors of war, and daughterhood, offering us a dynamic accumulation on the page that feels as delightful and devastating as life itself."—Gabrielle Bates
