13. Yu Yoyo and A.K. Blakemore

Celebrated Szechuanese poet Yu Yoyo reads from her new book, My Tenantless Body, published by the Poetry Translation Centre, alongside her poet translator A.K. Blakemore.

The poems in this sensitive yet forceful selection lead us through the haunted nightscapes of China with suitably dark wit, colliding the oblique with the plain-spoken, their young protagonist forever veering in and out of focus. Listen an unforgettable afternoon with this thrilling new poetic voice. Readings are in English and Chinese.
