From the publisher’s website:
Ji-Woo Hwang’s poems describe a life governed by the inescapable reality that all hell may break loose at any time, a reality that now permeates our own culture. His poems mix lyrical intensity with an acute political sensibility, creating an uneasy tension that makes them by turns moving, humorous, and unnerving.
Ji-Woo Hwang has since written seven books of poetry.
