Press & Reviews

“‘After years, months, days of assurances pouring in/from all over the realms,’ Grace Shuyi Liew writes in PROP, ‘the sisters/finally embrace their nationlessness’—and yet by the time the reader finishes this chapbook, she feels she has witnessed a rogue state, an Ur-state, and seen the way in which a plurality of bodies—even if only two—can become Law, Custom, Historicity, the Body Politic beautifully tailed and smelling of citronella. This is a deft and assured sequence, and I look forward to reading Liew’s work for years to come.”
