An expansive work inspired by Japanese prose-poetry from a poet of “rigorous intelligence, fierce anger, and deep vulnerability” (Mark Doty).

Kimiko Hahn, "a welcome voice of experimentation and passion" (Bloomsbury Review), takes up the Japanese prose-poetry genre zuihitsu—literally "running brush," which utilizes tactics such as juxtaposition, contradiction, and broad topical variety—in exploring her various identities as mother and lover, wife and poet, daughter of varied traditions.
