VIOLET ENERGY INGOTS NAMED A TOP BOOK OF THE FALL BY PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

P1030839 (1).jpg

Violet Energy Ingots by Hoa Nguyen (September, 2016) has been listed in the top ten poetry collections of fall 2016 by Publishers Weekly!

It’s Nguyen’s fourth collection, and the first since Red Juice: Poems 1998-2008.

The poems in Violet Energy Ingots contain a sense of dis-ease, rupture, things frayed, and grief—as love shimmers the edges. Ryo Yamaguchi describes Nguyen’s writing as “a kind of stuttering with intelligences, impressions, and emotions flaring up as the words find their pathways.” As grounded in the earth as in the stars, her poems are reminders of the possibilities of contemplation in every space and moment.
