Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies, LGBT Studies. To interrupt is to crystallize the line between belonging and unbelonging—in order to shatter it. BOOK OF INTERLUDES is a series of interruptions/interventions in varying forms: here are prose poems that double back into parentheticals, free verses that speak sternly of hesitance and equivocation, and short essays that rise out of specific cities into unspecified doubt. The book incites its readers to interrupt themselves in their readings in order to, over and over, enter a space of intermission and alienation, with all its glaring light and no clear exit path.
