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
