Life is experience. It is emotion-filled and challenging, and needs to be reminisced through the rearview mirror of it.
(PRWEB) June 06, 2012
Finishing Line Press is proud to announce the publication of their newest poetry chapbook, Love Rhythms, due out September 8th. The poetry chapbook, part of Finishing Line’s critically acclaimed Chapbook Series, is by Newport Beach author and entrepreneur, Ann Yu Huang.
The poems in Love Rhythms are intended for readers to take time to reflect on their lives instead of speeding through it. “Life is experience,” says author Ann Yu Huang. “It is emotion-filled and challenging, and needs to be reminisced through the rearview mirror of it. Surreal and sensuous, wise and beautiful, the emotional core felt under the surface of the page is meant to elucidate surprising sentiments by mingling dreams and reality.”
“Ann Huang’s stunning collection Love Rhythms is deftly written and elegant in utterance. Huang’s skill as a poet makes this an unforgettable collection,” writes Leah Maines, author of the regional best-seller Looking to the East with Western Eyes.
“Ann Huang’s poems evoke the dreamscape of someone living in suspension—between homelands and within the changing currents of love. Through her vision, colored by exile and desire, details in the everyday world take on clarity and startling, exquisite strangeness. She makes the world anew,” says poet Leslie Ullman, author of the Iowa Poetry Prize Winner Slow Work through Sand
Ann Yu Huang was born in Shanghai, China and moved to Mexico when she was a teen. She graduated from Baruch College of the City University of New York cum laude and has co-founded her own branded business Nature Bright Company. She is currently a candidate of MFA program in poetry at Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has studied with Poets and Writers Michael Steinberg, Barbara DeMarco-Barret, Nahid Rachlin, Gerald Costanzo, Jean Valentine, Rigoberto Gonzalez, and Leslie Ullman.
