Praise for Pursue
Nhan Trinh’s Pursue is a book of necessary meditations, a Viet Kieu’s reconciliation to truths born within the rage of wars—personal and political. His poetry speaks from the quieter moments when the witness gathers the sacred ghosts of both afterthoughts and afterimage to find meaning in present uncertainties. Yet his timbre shatters complacencies, resonating with all the fury of the prodigal son come back to reclaim his beloved and plundered ancestral home.
