Another Day by Kathy Mak
First electronic edition
Praise for Another Day:
I feel privileged to read the contemplative work of this promising Canadian poet. In Another Day, Mak bravely articulates the vital balancing act of seeing and situating one’s ethnic history along a spectrum of immigration and assimilation. Her experiences as an English as an Additional Language (EAL) peer educator are acutely wrought and particularly poignant.
- stephanie roberts, author of rushes from the river disappointment
Another Day is a formidable debut that ignites the chorus of race and determination, personal and familial love within the temples of one’s home and mother tongues, and the pulse of a “forever resilient” heart by a sagacious young poet. Mak has a dextrous eye for compounding the rhythms of one’s knotted everyday, tending to her role as poet with such an immense compassion and grace that moves me to the core deeply.
- Isabella Wang, author of On Forgetting a Language and Pebble Swing (forthcoming)
Mak seamlessly weaves dialogue, body memory, email, and empty space together into a sensory reading experience comparable to time-travel. We bear witness to intergenerational trauma; to cruel acts of casual racism; to sadness; to storytelling; to stardust. In an ephemeral world, Another Day is simply unforgettable.
- Sydney Warner Brooman, author of The Pump (forthcoming)
