Winner of the 2010 Perugia Press Prize, Each Crumbling House discusses how lineage is influenced by immigration, culture, and language. In what ways do expectations, ideas, and acts of inheritance consume us? Gee asks about inheriting a language that isn't hers and a culture that died during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, while she tangles with the loss of her mother's culture, food, history, and home. The poet writes about the fractious, disappointing, and also enriching experience of being first-generation Asian American. Written with precision of line, image, and syntax, these restrained lyric poems invite and reward the reader with their grace, and stand out for their historical and emotional interweaving.
