Asian and American, Entranced by Words

Poet Victoria Chang alerted me to this nice article in the San Francisco Chronicle -- -- about three Asian-American poets who have come out with new books of poetry this past year. More ideas for Christmas presents, or Hannukah presents, or Kwanzaa presents, or Hey-Why-Don't-Asian-Americans-Get-a-Holiday-of-Their-Own-in-December presents. (I don't think Hallmark makes cards for that last one.)

It is nice -- and highly unusual -- given the lack of space of typically devoted to poetry, let alone Asian-American poetry, in mainstream publications like the Chronicle.
