- "This book is a suite of poems by Boulder poet Teow Lim Goh. From 1910 to 1940, about 300,000 Chinese arrived at the Angel Island Immigration Station in the San Francisco Bay ... As they waited, some of them wrote poems on the barrack walls. There are no known records of poems by female detainees: the women's barracks were destroyed in a 1940 fire. Poet Teow Lim Goh imagines what they might have written on their walls."--Vamp and Tramp Booksellers website, viewed October 19, 2015.
