About the Book

“Zhang Er’s poems lead us to another world, dive into the blank of writing and shriek in despair. The eloquence in her poems is a voice debating our time.”Bei Dao

Zephyr’s second collection of Zhang Er’s poetry, this bilingual edition includes a selection of work from three of her most recent Chinese collections ranging from the late 1990s to the present day.

Zhang Er was born in Beijing, China, and moved to the United States in 1986. She is the author of multiple books in Chinese and English, including Verses On Bird (Zephyr Press, 2004). Er teaches at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
