|About the Book|
Close or Far is the poetic and lyrical creation of homesickness and love. It is romantic with desire, wishing, longing, and want. It is appreciative of filial closeness and has an eager-openness to embrace affection. The author is taken hold of by the beauty of the landscape, made reflective and introspective by the outrage of war, and becomes imaginative with scenarios involving drugs, jazz clubs, crime, sports, and ancient warfare. George Li delivers his poetry with heartfelt sincerity, careful feelings, and implicit depictions that leave the reader with a subtle aftertaste.
