Description

Finalist for the 2018 Paterson Poetry Prize

Christine Kitano's second poetry collection elicits a sense of hunger--an intense longing for home and an ache for human connection. Channeling both real and imagined immigration experiences of her own family--her grandmothers, who fled Korea and Japan; and her father, a Japanese American who was incarcerated during WWII--Kitano's ambitious poetry speaks for those who have been historically silenced and displaced.

Christine Kitano's first collection of poetry, Birds of Paradise, was published by Lynx House Press. She lives in Ithaca, NY, where she is an assistant professor of creative writing, poetry, and Asian American literature at Ithaca College.
