Poetry. Asian American Studies. Few things have changed the terrain of US literature in recent years as much as the global spread of English. The question that haunts much of this literature is less what it means to be an American and more what it means to suddenly be forced to be in dialogue with and in English, like it or not. Thai writer Padcha Tuntha-obas wrote TRESPASSES while she was living in the U.S.

for several years. And she takes up in this beautiful collection of poems what it means to be a Thai writer but one suddenly writing in English, what it means to be writing within the U.S. but not as an American, what it means to be caught in a difficult embrace with what is foreign--Juliana Spahr. Tuntha-obas chapbook COMPOSITE.DIPLOMACY (Tinfish Press) is also available from SPD.
