Book Overview:

Out of the mundane, a flash of lyrical. From the profane, a hint of sublime. And always, the inventive wordplay that cuts through the skin of language. Sucking up the marrow of his life, from crisis of faith to divorce, from fatherhood to being, yes, tattooed. Voices of killers and prostitutes. Poems at once intensely personal and universal about love, God and things that matter to the heart. Sudden in Youth: New and Selected Poems brings together the best of ten years of Felix Cheong’s poetry, as well as his recent writings.
