Jim Feast has created an epic cross-cultural love song that marries East and West, prose and poetry, memoir and history. In this book, he charts the love affair between him and his spouse who is Chinese but grew up in Viet Nam and he does it with jazzy, fluid, inventiveness in a voice that is by turns spare, lyrical, or theoretical. Reading it, I couldn t help but think of other iconic tales of poets and their muses. This one, mixing in everything from food to pop music to mythology, is tailor-made for our postmodern times. It even suggests a new take on globalism one in which our world is connected not so much by commerce as by love. Elaine Equi, author of Sentences and Rain --Back cover
Time Extends Life To Those Who Survive is a paean/hymn in praise of LOVE: LOVE that can be only seen by those who are under its wing & that yearns and desires to recognize an original unity of body and soul/spirit and matter as the human personality. Jim & Nhi found each other, crossing the cultural/ racial differences, to proclaim that they are proud to be alive. Here we are generously invited to share the profound essence of their story of LOVE initially written for themselves alone. Yuko Otomo, artist/ writer, author of Study & Other Poems on Art and Elements --Back cover
