Weaving complex junctions between music, speech, the body, and sexuality, these poems trace the arc of adolescence and early adulthood, rooting themselves in gritty landscapes of the South and Appalachia, China and its borderlands.Part narrative and part lyric, Rogerss poems make use of the whole field of the page, assembling an innovative poetic vocabulary that includes word, character, and symbol.

By calling on figures from the recent as well as the distant past, this coming-of-age collection asks us to consider history, both personal and political.Whether struggling to make vibrato on the guitar or stringing together her first sentences in Mandarin, the speaker of these poems assumes the role of the eager student, edging her way toward an understanding with both fierceness and a sense of humility. Chord Box is exquisitely crafted and rich with feeling, a dazzling debut collection.Chord Box is part of the University of Arkansas Press Poetry Series, edited by Enid Shomer.
