Poetry. Asian American Studies. Winner of the 2008 DeNovo Poetry Prize. "Jason Koo's MAN ON EXTREMELY SMALL ISLAND is an absurdly funny meditation on loneliness, desire and the silences between us. By turns mythic and pop, Koo's poems explore the anger, betrayal and compromises of young love, as well as the complexities of communication within families. MAN ON EXTREMELY SMALL ISLAND is a self-effacing look at anguish, an expansive and inclusive debut"—Denise Duhamel.
