內容簡介 From the author: "This is a collection which aims to lay bare a mixed-race experience: Native Americans understood only as wax models in museums, erased discourses of Indigeneity; the immigrant grind, Asian Americans in Anglo Society, anti-Hapa rhetoric reverbing in 21st century America; the quandary of Rust Belt poverty plaguing small Appalachian communities, its cycle of concrete ceilings, its left-hook-right-hook masculinity, its dirt-caked realities."
作者介紹 Benjamín Naka-Hasebe Kingsley is not the Ben Kingsley best known for his Academy Award-winning role as Mahatma Gandhi. This Ben is a touch less famous, having not acted since his third-grade debut as the Undertaker in Music Man. Affrilachian author and Kundiman alum, Ben is currently the 22nd Tickner Writing Fellow and recipient of a Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center Fellowship. He belongs to the Onondaga Nation of Indigenous Americans in New York. His next collection, Colonize Me, is forthcoming with Saturnalia in 2019, followed by Demos, with Milkweed Editions in 2020. Peep his recent work in the anthologies Best New Poets 2017 (ed. Natalie Diaz), Native Voices: Indigenous Poetry from North America, and Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors, as well as the journals American Indian Culture and Research, Boston Review, Kenyon Review, New England Review, Oxford American, and Tin House, among others.
