Cathy Song's poems are "bouquets to those moments in life that seemed minor but in retrospect count the most," Richard Hugo said of the poet's first book. "She accommodates experiential extremes with a sensibility strengthened by patience that is centuries old, ancestral, tribal, a gift passed down."

Unremarkable. It commits the cardinal sin of any book - boring the reader. It reads like a stale memoir with little plot and less craft. It's not bad, but it's also no good. But it makes a fantastic cautionary tale for aspiring poets: like fortune, art favors the bold.
