Chiang’s recently released book of selected poems, 7 Continents, 9 Lives, spans 20 years of poetry as a Queens native and a Lower East Side activist, revealing the multiple lives of the city, ranging from widows to a man’s final steps into an AIDS hospice. Kwong’s classic study The New Chinatown, was heralded as a “splendid antidote to the consistent misrepresentation of Chinese-American life in the press and in scholarly writings” by David Montgomery of Yale University.
