You Left Without Your Shoes Reviews
Incredibly touching, deeply moving, subtle, multi-textured writing, pushing through cross-cultural boundaries carrying longing, memory, love, contradiction and history. A must-read for people interested in words from and into the global heart intimate to identity, family, loss and humor.
What I said about Kenji's poems:In You Left Without Your Shoes, Kenji Liu engages and entangles his reader in a conversation, a testament, an ocean, a desert of memory, a flight, a witness towards the survival of loss and what lies beyond. These multi-layered poems, tender and resilient, fly towards the possible.
