BJR has made language both accessible and inaccessible at the same time playing with it as Cathy Hong Park does in Dance Dance Revolution and Jessica Hagerdron does in Dogeaters. You navigate the book and Reyes gives clues and instructions on how to approach the text. The text does so much in terms of language, culture and gender. You are able to see the intersections of identity with the intersections of language here. A playful book--this is one that I read and re-read over and over again because I find something new each time.

Reyes is able to take a look at the American culture surrounding war from an outsider's point of view. She takes on several different voices throughout the work, from a white American male to an Asian woman, yet through use of irony each speaks from her own perspective. The ideas that she shares are powerful, and leave the reader pondering issues of racism and war. If you like poems that make you question your own culture, then this a good read.

This book overwhelmed me with its beauty and tremulous dance between worlds. Althouough I can only read English with any real understanding, I delighted in the texture and aesthetic richness of the untranslated bits contained herein. This immediately became an important book to myself as a poet. One of the best collections of recent years. I look forward eagerly to Reyes' future work.
