Overview

Taking its title from Tomas Tranströmer, Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang’s Grappling Hook sifts the debris of the twenty-first century for insights into identity, desire, and the everyday struggles inherent to motherhood. In doing so, she presents vivid portraits of the joys and perils of marriage, the evolving fight for social justice in a world divided by inequity, and the uncertain future thats’s left for children of the digital age. Grappling Hook is an impressive display of Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang’s considerable poetic gifts, and a love letter to those who are making meaningful change in unprecedented times.

Reviews

“Sarah Tsiang dissects our domestic intimacies with such a gorgeous blade. Funny, mature, unnerving, and tender, the poems in this book accomplish a brilliant balance between edges of love and violence. ”—Sadiqa de Meijer, author of The Outer Wards
