Angry Yellow Woman is the debut poetry collection from Vera Chok.  Is Vera a woman, though? And how yellow are they? The anger is real.  These playful, searching, and violently sexy pieces expose Vera's immigrant-hobo journey through the landscapes, beds, and bodies of the UK and beyond.  They were scratched out to understand an alien identity. They’re a record of how - and where - Vera has tried to locate safety and joy. At the ends of the earth, or down Bethnal Green station? It might be a coming-of-age tale, but this Colonised body seems stuck dreaming of the Empire - flat nose pressed up against the window of Tesco, Chinese eyes wide, hungry. Mouth sighing Malay.
