The Landlady In Bangkok

Writing poems set in Southeast Asia, Swenson absorbs the anguish of colonization and dictatorship to reveal ordinary people and events with a sardonic humor, pathos, and hope. Selected for the National Poetry Series by Maxine Kumin.”She is…a poet of consequence, bearing witness in charged language to all that she has seen.”–Wall Street Journal
