"The poems of Sediment - as remarkable for their resonant clarity as for their carefully distilled imagery - are everywhere haunted by cities: cities of memory, ancestry, displacement, cities of to abandon and to be abandoned. Tseng asks us to consider the differences between belonging and being claimed, to embrace equally the fact of longing and the fact that 'some things/we were never meant to keep.' A strong debut, indeed." CARL PHILLIPS "It's been a long time since I have encountered a work of art that has so viscerally invoked my own painful memories of separation, abandonment and exile. This is a wonderful, compelling first book." MARILYN CHIN"
