Hardly War, Don Mee Choi's major second collection, defies history, national identity, and militarism. Using artifacts from Choi's father, a professional photographer during the Korean and Vietnam wars, she combines memoir, image, and opera to explore her paternal relationship and heritage. Here poetry and geopolitics are inseparable twin sisters, conjoined to the belly of a warring empire.

One of the most powerful books I've read in years. Don Mee Choi is a brilliant visual, sound, and textual poet.

My most favorite thing about this collection is the combination of child-like humor and the seriousness of war. It's zany, it's daring, it's challenging, and it's beyond memorable.
