Poetry. Asian American Studies. Nominated for the PEN American Center's Beyond Margins Award and the Poetry Society of America's Norma Farber First Book Award. Poetry that knows what you're thinking. "Michael Leong pursues what he calls a 'ludic inarticulacy' throughout the pages of E.S.P., and like all great adventures, the chase is as good as the capture. He's got a wonderful sense of humor, combined with a magician's ease and the biggest wand in three counties. Puns, acronyms, anagrams, plays on words abound, though in the service of some deeper feeling. It's all in what you don't see, but when the shell game's over, you'll be feeling Leong's words stitched on the inside of your pockets"--Kevin Killian.
