Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Tina Cane's new collection of poems, BODY OF WORK, fuses the personal and the political as it explores the nature of work, poetry, economics, and motherhood. BODY OF WORK is a meditation on memory and change: the changing landscape of the inner and outer life, of family and city, and the nature of personal and cultural identity. Cane reflects upon the continual mysteries of her Chinese-American heritage and the complexities of being a person in the world with others.
