Tanon Sai Jai

20.00

In this Sahtu Press reissue of award-winning poet Bryan Thao Worra’s 2009 collection, the author addresses the complicated twists and turns of the Lao diaspora in his most intimate collection yet. Composed of 56 poems and a photo essay, Bryan Thao Worra contemplates what it means to be Lao and Lao American. Is there a difference? How do we reconcile with memory, and how do we share a future? Tanon Sai Jai probes many of the familiar symbols and everyday objects of Lao life and pays tribute to many of the artists, writers and community builders the author met along the way. Sometimes deep, soften humorous and humane, Tanon Sai Jai gives readers many things to think about on the Path of the Heart.
