With subtle twists of language and striking images, this collection is one to slip into and reread. The first and last sections of the book (about half the whole work all together) are undoubtedly the strongest, at least for my taste, since some of the middle poems verge more on "language poetry" where meaning is far more subjective than at other points in the work. Lim's voice makes the whole work, though, gliding and pleasant, even in shocking moments. Variety in style and tone push the work along as well, and in the end, I think readers might be better for reading this in a few long sittings, as opposed to sampling a poem occasionally. This isn't easily accessible poetry at many points, but it is an exploration, and well worth the time for poetry readers. ( )
