CRATERS: A field guide
By Kenji C. Liu
"Craters" is a metaphysical field guide to the way institutional violence manifests in the ancestral memory of a body. Liu uses hybrid English-Japanese transliterations to divine the I Ching's prophetic patriarchy and ekphrastic time-stamped poems to scrutinize bodily opposition to oppression. There's kaiju and unitedstatesian monsters. John Wayne too.
"Rejecting pity and the culture of white supremacy, "Craters" advances new modes of bearing and communicating one's fractured self..." MH
