Poetry. Asian American Studies. "Cameraman, run to my twin twin zone. A girl's exile excels beyond excess. Essence excels exile. Something happens to the wanted girl. Nothing happens to the unwanted girl. The morning news is exciting." A debut volume from poet, translator, artist and activist Don Mee Choi. Here translation, aberration, mobility and movement corrupt the would-be verities of the world's hegemonic codes. "Choi translates feminist politics into an experimental poetry that demilitarizes, deconstructs, and decolonizes any master narrative."--Craig Santos Perez .

Don Mee Choi was born in South Korea and came to the U.S. via Hong Kong. She is a translator of contemporary Korean women's poetry; her books of translation include When The Plug Gets Unplugged and Mommy Must Be a Fountain of Feathers (both by Kim Hyesoon), and Anxiety of Words: Contemporary Poetry by Korean Women. She lives and works in Seattle.Review:
The Morning News makes the divide between poetry and prose pointless. Choi is not particularly intersted in the art/academic blurring of poetry/prose, but in taking each area to its limits. --Sande Cohen
This collection arrives below the 38th parallel, crosses transnational distances, and dwells within the traumatic and triumphant experience of women as exiles and against empire. Choi translates feminist politics into an experimental poetry that demilitarizes, deconstructs and decolonizes any master narrative. --Craig Santos Perez
In this book, Choi transits and translates teh doubleness of self, kin, home and nation shattered by past colonialism and by continuing imperialism and capitalist predation. --Minnie Bruce Pratt
