Poetry. Asian American Studies. "Dhompa's potent suite of poems elucidates the humanness and adversities of the Tibetan diaspora. You enter the immigrant girl-child's bifurcated world, coming and going, language to language, culture to culture, from childhood to sexuality. A lovely explication of 'dharma—things as they are, and how precious they are, no special pleading—Anne Waldman.

About the Author:

Tsering Wangmo Dhompa was raised in India and Nepal. Tsering received her MA from University of Massachussetts and her MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. Her first book of poems, RULES OF THE HOUSE, published by Apogee Press in 2002 was a finalist for the Asian American Literary Awards in 2003. Other publications include IN THE ABSENT EVERYDAY (Apogee Press, 2005) and two chapbooks, In Writing the Names (A.bacus, Potes & Poets Press) and Recurring Gestures (Tangram Press). Tsering works for a San Francisco based non-profit foundation that provides humanitarian aid to people of the Himalayas.

From Publishers Weekly:

Apparently the first book of poems in English by (or about) a Tibetan-American, Tsering Wangmo Dhompa's Rules of the House is set in Tibet and in the South Asian exile communities where Dhompa spent her youth. Her interconnected, memory-drenched poems (many in short prose paragraphs) move easily between particular Tibetan losses and a gnomic lyric mode that welcomes all comers: monastery kitchens sit beside funerals and love affairs, epigrams promise "wording eyes," and one page concludes "Give eyes to your feet. Don't follow."
