“To be a daughter, a survivor, and a poet are all aligned in the need “to rewrite everything,” a need that [Cathy Linh Che] navigates with brutality and tenderness, devastation and irrepressible endurance.”
Publishers Weekly

“Perhaps the writer’s most difficult task is to render the catastrophic linked non-stories that comprise transgenerational trauma. Cathy Linh Che’s collection Split accomplishes this nearly impossible challenge with uncommon grace and power. Each poem unwinds the cataclysm of personal wounding by making itself irresistibly beautiful.”
Los Angeles Review

“A brave, delicate, and terrifying account of what we do to each other. Here we cross over into a landscape where beauty interrogates, and we encounter a voice that refuses to let us off the hook.”
