SALON EXCLUSIVE: Darien Hsu Gee reads from ‘Other Small Histories’

Darien Hsu Gee is an award-winning author of five novels and winner of the 2019 Poetry Society of America’s Chapbook Fellowship. We’re always saying we want to share more poetry so we’re thrilled to share this beautiful collection with you that traces the author’s matrilineal heritage through five generations – Other Small Histories.

If you enjoyed Darien’s reading, Other Small Histories is available now in a limited print run through the Poetry Society of America (get them while you can!). She also has a new book out – Allegiance – which is published by Legacy Isle Publishing and touches on many of the same themes. It can be purchased in all good bookshops, as well as in our own bookshop on Bookshop.org.

Darien has also kindly provided us with a reading list of books that inspire her writing which you can browse here.
