Bi-Lingual Reading with Tanya Ko Hong

An utterly stunning dive into the center of the history and humanity of Korean "comfort women" and how the ripples continue into the Korean diaspora. Tanya Ko Hong is a masterful writer and storyteller.

"In The War Still Within, Tanya Ko Hong weaves a scarlet thread from Korea to the United States, from World War II to yesterday, from ancient stories to cell phone calls--this blood-soaked thread is the suffering of women and the legacy handed down from mother to daughter, for generations and across continents. These poems invoke exquisite imagery to tell the truth about exploitation, cruelty, betrayal, and displacement. The stories of these women burn themselves into your heart."

--Terry Wolverton, poet, novelist, and author of 12 books, including Ruin Porn
