All the Flowers Kneeling
A virtuosic poetry debut on reinvention and rebuilding the self; on pain and triumph; on storytelling as survival
This is a book about survival.
This is a book about love.
Visceral and astonishing, Paul Tran's debut poetry collection, All the Flowers Kneeling, charts the rebuilding of a self in the wake of extremity. How, it asks, can we reimagine what we have been given in order to make something new: an identity, a family, a life, a dream?
