House A investigates the tones and textures of immigrant home-building by asking: How is the body inscribed with a cosmology of home, and vice versa? With evocative and intellectual precision, House A weaves personal, discursive, and lyrical textures to invoke the immersive-obscured experience of an immigrant homes entanglement while mapping a new poetics of American Home, steeped in longing and rooted by displacement.

Recensioner i media

"A poetry collection constructed from three disparate yet harmonious parts, House A concerns itself with identity-building, diaspora, and the physical act of building a home and an immigrant family on foreign soil. Yet while these are familiar themes, Cheng defamiliarizes them for the reader through her refractory poems that have the effect of a kaleidoscope, dividing experiences into tiny crystalline slivers and re-assembling them to illustrate the unexpected colors and shapes that lie buried within everyday domestic life."--Kim Liao "Rumpus" (1/1/2016 12:00:00 AM) "House A by Jennifer S. Cheng investigates the tones and textures of immigrant homebuilding by asking: how is the body inscribed with a cosmology of home, and vice versa? Selected by Claudia Rankine as winner of the 2015 Omnidawn 1st/2nd Book Contest."-- "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2016 12:00:00 AM) "In her elegiac debut, Cheng, winner of the 2015 Omnidawn 1st/2nd Book Prize, excavates the nostalgic ephemera of the immigrant home. The poems are delicate and dexterous, with Cheng juxtaposing diasporic history with childhood memory."-- "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2016 12:00:00 AM) "The precocious [Letters to Mao] combine references to neuropsychological theories of sleep with tender memories of a parent's cooking or storytelling. They also play with our logical expectations, which is fitting, since these poems grant access to the truth of daydreams, not waking reason."--Floyd Cheung "Massachusetts Review" (1/1/2017 12:00:00 AM)
