about this item
Praise for Sun Yung Shin:
Finalist for the Believer Poetry Award
"[her] work reads like redactions, offering fragments to be explored, investigated and interrogated, making her reader equal partner in the creation of meaning."Star Tribune
Sun Yung Shin moves ideasof identity (Korean, American, adoptee, mother, Catholic, Buddhist) and interest (mythology, science fiction, Sophocles) around like building blocks, forming and reforming new constructions of what it means to be at home.
What is a cyborg but a hybrid creature of excess? A thing that exceeds the sum of its parts. A thing that has extended its powers, enhanced, even superpowered.
