Synopsis: This breakthrough volume by award-winning poet Kimiko Hahn is her most rigorously "female" work to date as she reclaims the female body and reinvents an ancient Chinese correspondence. Mosquito and Ant refers to the style in which nu fu --a nearly extinct script used by Chinese women to correspond with one another --is written. Here in this exciting and totally original book of poems the narrator corresponds with L. about her hidden passions, her relationship with her husband and adolescent daughters, lost loves, and erotic fantasies. Borrowing from both Japanese and Chinese traditions, Hahn offers us an authentic and complex narrator struggling with the sorrows and pleasures of being a woman against the backdrop of her Japanese-American roots.

About the Author: Hahn is the author of The Unbearable Heart, which won the American Book Award, and Earshot, winner of the Theodore Roethke Award, along with two other collections. She is the winner of the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Award.
