Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


A poet who skillfully manages lines both long and short to create narratives and lyric diction as she composes universes of elegance, raw sorrows, and the joys of human existence. “Zhao Si is a poet of the infinite. She perceives enormous questions – the structure of the universe, the way in which time expands and contracts, and the realms of quantum physics and Hawking cosmos – in the same breath as she watches a beggar outside a subway station, a woman riding a bicycle through rain, or a homeless man with skin maladies. A keen observer of what exists right before her eyes, Zhao Si is constantly reminding her reader that the macrocosm exists in the microcosm, that what is visible in the finite is also to be perceived in the infinite if we are willing to open our eyes.” —from Bruce Meyer's Introduction
