Here is a link —
–to a review I just wrote of a collection of contemporary Chinese poets, Trees Grow Lively on Snowy Fields. The review is published in the online journal Singapore Unbound. Stephen Haven is an American poet who has worked with several native Chinese translators over the course of a thirty-year collaboration, and together they have created lovely translations that offer passageways between distinctly different cultures. I hope you enjoy both the review, and the book.

I am a poet and literary critic. I have written two books of poetry: 'Genealogies' was published in April 2016. My first book of poetry is titled 'My Gargantuan Desire'. I also have two chapbooks: 'Propagandas', and 'Limits of Resurrection'. I am working on a manuscript titled 'Medical Life’, which is book of creative non-fiction.
I have worked as a neuropsychologist for many years in a New England tertiary care medical center, and in the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. 'Medical Life' reflects my encounters with people who have had neurological insults of various sorts, and the problems that result.
When I am not writing, or working, I'll be out in my ocean kayak in either the Pacific or Atlantic Oceans. The unconstructed world.
