The Asian Amer­i­can ex­pe­ri­ence is lit­tle known, com­par­a­tively, and that’s a shame on this coun­try. Im­mi­grants are the best of us. In­tro­duc­ing Chris­tine Ki­tano—not that her work needs an AA as­ter­isk as a sell­ing point—and Sky Coun­try, her sec­ond col­lec­tion af­ter Birds of Par­adise.

Orig­i­nally from LA, the daugh­ter of a Korean im­mi­grant mother and Ja­panese fa­ther, she earned an MFA at Syra­cuse and now teaches poetry and Asian Amer­i­can lit­er­a­ture at Ithaca Col­lege.
