Next up in the PBS Gift Guide is Mary Jean Chan's Costa Prize winning collection Flèche. Named after an offensive technique commonly used in fencing, a sport in which Mary Jean Chan competed locally and internationally for her home city, Hong Kong. In Flèche complex themes of multilingualism, queerness, psychoanalysis and cultural history emerge, so too does a richly imagined personal, maternal and national biography. The result is a series of poems that feel urgent and true, dazzling and devastating by turns.
