A third generation Japanese American, Kitano writes with an eerie, clarified composure of her family's struggles--immigration, culture shock, internment--and of her own private struggle to understand them and herself. Her confident, beautifully crafted poems are suggestive of a mature poet at the top of her form; but, amazingly, this is her first book.

Birds of Paradise is an apt title for the collection, as paradise exists only in the imagination . . . And, birds of paradise are only resemblances . . . The poems thus leave one feeling close and remote at the same time, estranged and yet familiar. -- Henry W. Leung * Lantern Review Blog *
