    '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)
