BEING QUEER AND ASIAN AMERICAN; FAMILIES WE ARE BORN INTO AND ONES WE CHOSE; NOSTALGIA, TRAUMA AND HISTORY—ALL DISSECTED FEARLESSLY.

Not Here is a flight plan for escape and a map for navigating home; a queer Vietnamese American body in confrontation with whiteness, trauma, family, and nostalgia; and a big beating heart of a book. Nguyen’s poems ache with loneliness and desire and the giddy terrors of allowing yourself to hope for love, and revel in moments of connection achieved.
