A Hurry of English by Mary Jean Chan
PBS Summer Pamphlet Choice
Due to closure of third party facilities, orders for this title may be delayed for several weeks. Those wishing to place pre-orders will have the option of receiving a digital copy in the interim.
The sense of movement in Mary Jean Chan’s deft and assured debut pamphlet is
both external and internal, as she strives to forge new relationships with her
parents and country of origin, while learning to live out the beliefs and desires of
her own emerging self. These poems couple rawness of emotion with crystalline
language, and are a significant addition to the worlds of both poetry and queer
writing in the UK.
