My first book-length collection of poetry, Dear Jenny, We Are All Find, is making its shy entrance into the world. If you like, you can order it from Small Press Distribution, or from my publisher Octopus Books, or from your favorite independent bookstore, or from the usual corporate suspects.
Very selected praise:
Poetry. Asian American Studies. “Jenny Zhang’s poems broadcast themselves with a surrealist anxiety. ‘Can’t I be my own dream?’ she asks. The answer is always yes and always no. With dizzying energy and intelligence, Zhang forages through familial, global, and even anatomical configurations vainly outlining an identity that manifests only to shift and move restlessly on. This book brings to mind a 21st century Whitman, only female, Chinese, and profoundly scatological.”
