Postscripts of a City Burning reviewed in Prism international

Many thanks to Robert Colman for this insightful review of Sam Cheuk’s Postscripts from a City Burning: “Cheuk’s new poetry collection, Postscripts from a City Burning, captures the frustration of losing one’s home to authoritarian forces by chronicling three months in 2019 after attempts by the government to pass an extradition bill which would have allowed China to legally arrest voices of political dissent in Hong Kong. While the extradition bill was withdrawn, these poems stress how the tension and fear among the populace did not, and could not dissipate, as fears of imprisonment remained.” Read the entire review here: The Tattered Cloth: A review of Postscripts from a City Burning by Sam Cheuk
