Roy Miki’s first poetry collection is a brilliant discourse which sounds the originary, unheard voices of family and community from the perspective of "sansei" or third-generation Japanese Canadians. These exquisitely balanced poems trace the fragility of ancestral bonds.


Roy Miki’s first poetry collection is a brilliant discourse which sounds the originary, unheard voices of family and community from the perspective of "sansei" or third-generation Japanese Canadians. These exquisitely balanced poems trace the fragility of ancestral bonds. Diamond-edged, they expose those subtle connections which tie the personal to a collective past scarred by the old wounds of internment and denied identity.

“The drama of Roy’s life—his family, politics, community, his unswerving passion for justice—is transformed here into burning coals that glow through the long, cold night.”
—Joy Kogawa, author of Obasan
