Not Here is a flight plan for escape and a map for navigating home; a queer Vietnamese American body in confrontation with whiteness, trauma, family, and nostalgia; and a big beating heart of a book.

The poems in this highly anticipated second book are elegiac poems, as concerned with honoring our dead as they are with praising the living.
