Overview

From the acclaimed, award-winning poet, this new collection is a gripping search for life and truth.

From Thylias Moss, one of America's most innovative poets, comes Tokyo Butter, perhaps her most innovative book to date. Inventing new poetics as she goes, Moss applies her exhilarating capacity for language to a synthesis of the personal, the historical, and the cultural. She searches searches for vestiges of Deirdre, a beloved cousin who has left the living; for hints of Cindy Song, a college student missing since 2001; and for manifestations of her true self in the archaic wings of science.

Moss' imagination is, as always, ravenous, interrogative—but in Tokyo Butter there is an urgency amidst the jagged, beautiful verse that has become her trademark.
