About this title


In Angels for the Burning, David Mura examines the experience of contemporary Asian-Americans and the various aspects of familial history between first-, second-, and third-generation Japanese-Americans. Mura believes one of poetry’s tasks is to explore the challenges to our identities as we encounter various “others” and other visions of ourselves and our world. Mura’s new collection of poems attempts to accomplish this task.

David Mura is a poet, nonfiction writer, critic, playwright and performance artist. His numerous awards include a Lila Wallace Readers Digest Writer’s Award and two NEA fellow-ships. He has been featured in a number of PBS shows on literature, art and identity. He lives in Minneapolis, MN.
