Baziju explores the literature of China, from centuries past to the present, exploring, at the same time, the meaning of hope and of home: childhood homes, the homes we grow into, and the homes in our minds. In Lu Xun’s classic story My Old Home,” the hero returns from a distant city to the home he left two decades earlier. Hope, he ponders, is just like the roads of the earth. . . . [T]o begin with the earth has no roads, but where many people pass, there a road is made.”
These sensual, deeply personal prose poems ponder change, loss, friendship, and belonging. In a life in which every detail has significance, the smallest observation grows, and spreads like the branches of wisteria.
