"One of the most important books of poetry to come along in years." —Craig Morgan Teicher, NPR
Named a Best Book of 2019 by NPR and Publishers Weekly, Hybrida is a stirring and confident examination of mixed-race identity, violence, and history skillfully rendered through the lens of motherhood. In an agile blend of zuihitsu, ghazal, mosaic poems, and lyric essays, Tina Chang "evokes the bottomless love and terror of motherhood as she describes raising her mixed-race son" (New York Times). Ambitious and revelatory, Hybrida establishes Chang as one of the most vital voices of her generation.
