Baker & Taylor
A collection of new poems that capture in a searing and unforgettable fashion the experiences of ethinic minorities and the urban poor

Norton Pub
Collected here are poems from Ai's four early books-Cruelty, Killing Floor, Sin, and Fate-along with seventeen new poems. Employing her trademark force, the new dramatic monologues continue to mine this award-winning poet's fierce vision. In Ai's world desire has no boundaries. Known as the foremost poet of urban terror, part African American, Asian American, and Native American, Ai takes the reader on a journey into the heart, torn from the bared chests of the living and sacrificed to the ravenous dead.

& Taylor

A collection of poems from Ai's first four books also contains seventeen new poems that continue her gift for dramatic monologues that capture, in a searing and unforgettable fashion, the experiences of ethnic minorities and the urban poor.
