“A running leap at the song”Review by Michael Cavuto
Treasure is remarkable in the way that Nguyens unique poetics of mostly short lines and fragmentary images scattered across the page with rhythmic ease opens into a mosaic of narratives that move between her own life, her mothers, and mythic realms where the dislodged ghosts of unrealized futures and cultural pasts speak and insist their presence.
