Diode Editions, March 2022
"In her dazzling debut chapbook, Stephanie Niu dives into the depths of myth, family origin, and migration with tender, lyrical poems of remarkable craft, taking us on an expansive search for home. Bodies of water ebb and flow throughout, carrying the reader from Georgia to Michigan, from China to Christmas Island, as the speaker works to reclaim a primary world where “everything is worthy / of devotion.” Niu is a revelation, and her clear-eyed poems hum with elemental power."
—Kai Carlson-Wee, author of RAIL
