    'Pigeonholed is as much a tribute to genre writing as it is a hook of defiance. Because everyone knows what it means to be pigeonholed. As members of society, we're intimately familiar with the feeling of being boxed in. Right now I'm squeezed in the 'gestating woman' category. It fits me uncomfortably, though my body takes to it keenly enough.' (Editorial introduction)

    'Eileen Chong’s luminous poetry examines the histories – personal, familial and cultural – that form our identities and obsessions.

    'A Thousand Crimson Blooms is a deepening of her commitment to a poetics of sensuous simplicity and complex emotions, even as she confronts the challenges of infertility or fraught mother–daughter relations. Entwined throughout are questions of migration and belonging.

    'Viewed as a whole, this collection is a field of flowers, aflame with light.'' (Publication summary)
