New review of Floating, Brilliant, Gone on Muzzle Magazine

Posted by on Nov 21 2014, in Floating Brilliant Gone, reviews


The wonderful Muzzle Magazine just posted a lovely review of Floating, Brilliant, Gone.  Here’s the opening paragraph:

“Franny Choi’s debut poetry collection Floating, Brilliant, Gone skillfully addresses trauma, identity, memory, and grief, positioning the poet as both witness to and evidence of loss, daring the past to blink first. Jess X. Chen’s illustrations – birds and bones, trees and feathers – highlight the uneasy ethereality that runs through the collection. Together, the words and images evoke the relationship between absence and permanence, a haunted house with windows opening onto surprising moments of beauty and joy.”
