Rules of the House by Tsering Wangmo Dhompa

Excerpts | Ordering Info

Dhompa's potent suite of poems elucidates the humanness and adversities of the Tibetan diaspora. You enter the immigrant girl-child's bifurcated world, coming and going, language to language, culture to culture, from childhood to sexuality. A lovely explication of 'dharma' — things as they are, and how precious they are, no special pleading.

—Anne Waldman
