The second collection by Los Angeles poet Chiwan Choi explores the arc of his life, and that of his family, through an alien abduction mythology.
Abductions is Book #1 of Choi’s “Home in Three Parts” trilogy.
On the surface, Choi’s poems have a quiet, controlled quality to them. Underneath, there’s danger and rage and sadness. His voice rings clear and true in this volume, and I can’t stop hearing it in my head.
—Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
