Poetry. Asian American Studies. "Timothy Liu is too often reduced to being a poet of sexual audacity. He is audacious, but perhaps in his baroque architecture, his fluency, his intricacy, and his unwillingness to reduce himself by dogma or theory or design.

Timothy Liu is the other of seven other books of poetry, most recently POLYTHEOGAMY, also available from SPD. His poems have been translated into nine languages, and his papers and journals are archived in the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library. He lives in Manhattan.
