Phoenix Gone, the Terrace Empty (Revised Edition)
Author: Marilyn Chin
Publisher: Milkweed Editions (2009)
In the 15 years since this book came out, Marilyn Chin has been widely recognized as a consummate poet of the hybrid experience, blending East and West, popular and high culture, personal and political. Praised for its streetwise lyricism, this groundbreaking volume captures a young immigrant woman’s perspective as she encounters the nexus of tradition and commercialism in modern, diverse, and urban California. With this new edition, a modern classic is reintroduced to a new generation of readers.
