American Symphony: Other White Lies
Suiyi Tang ’20. Civil Coping Mechanisms, October 2019. Available on Amazon. This book is a portrait of a portrait, a mirror’s reflection of someone that’s gone missing, a speculative memoir that takes cues and challenges from works by Kathy Acker, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, and Jenny Zhang. Suiyi Tang takes linguistic fortitude and bends it into a new shape, achieving new emotional heights.
