"An exceptional covey of writers using language and thought to plumb questions of relationship to Asia as well as the non-Asian spaces they live in. The fact of this rigorous anthology, arranged with care and deliberate attention, shows me more new poets and writers to read again and again and trust that there are presses out there with representational justice helming the literary world. Think of how many constellations are out there beyond the Cherry Moon. Think of CHERRY MOON opening the pages of possibility." —Rajiv Mohabir
