Gingko Kitchen by Louise Bak

| /

Ranging widely from extreme intensity to breathy ethereality, these poems challenge preconceptions about race, culture, sexuality and language. Bak's liberal spicing of her sometimes startling uses of English argot put her poetry at the forefront of feminist discourse in a series of texts that are at once confrontational and conciliatory.
