Launch of A Thousand Crimson Blooms by Eileen Chong

I dreamed everyone, even my own

mother, had forgotten my name —

Award-winning poet Eileen Chong's luminous poetry examines the histories—personal, familial and cultural—that form our identities and obsessions. A Thousand Crimson Blooms is a deepening of her commitment to a poetics of sensuous simplicity and complex emotions, even as she confronts the challenges of infertility or fraught mother–daughter relations. Entwined throughout are questions of migration and belonging. Viewed as a whole, this collection is a field of flowers, aflame with light.
