Poetry. A National Poetry Series winner, chosen by John Yau. These poems spin tales of traveling in a world both romantic and politicized, a world miniaturized by globalization and haunted by the figure of the cosmopolitan, who is aware of its saturated history, yet inspired by the knowledge that nostalgia is merely "memory decayed to sugar." In the kingdom of Donna Stonecipher's imagination, "a story is always forming to adorn reality," and the fall of the Eastern bloc is reenacted the night "the girl with the DDR bag met the boy with the CCCP T-shirt."
