“Although Nguyen is a learned scholar and teacher of her wide-ranging influences—which include the Black Mountain College, the Beats, the second generation New York School, and others—her voice is resolutely her own: informal, domestic and irreverent, sloppy and precise, warm and brusque. There is so much historically impermissible stuff in these poems: exclamation marks and food and political rage and the occult and dirty words and the sweet, off-kilter truisms uttered by children.”
