Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women's Studies. Grand Prize Winner, 2013 Willow Books Literature Award for Poetry. There's something lush and holy in these poems that slip between generations, between daughterhood and motherhood. BLOOD ORANGE elegantly charts the mysteries of family and place, time and its uncertainties, with a keen vision that is at once sensual, entrancing and deeply felt. Line by careful line, Torres brings forward an enchanting poetry, with 'two fingers on the pulse like the true point / of a divining rod, ' always ready to lead us to water or love--the currents that shimmer beneath this book's rich surfaces.--Matthew Olzmann.
