Book Summary

Drawing from different sources—including the Old Testament, the Dao De Jing and the music of the Wu Tang Clan—a collection of poems attempts to uncover things hidden since the dawn of the world, investigating human violence and dispossession increasingly prevalent around the world, as well as the horrors the poet grew up with as a child of refugees.
