In the Beautiful Country is a story about a girl, her family, and their tumultuous pursuit of the American Dream. Heavy with the weight of what we call home, this book is full of rich introspection and stunning lines. These poems plant you right into Anna's world: a small city in California called Duarte, a school of bullies, a church of friends, a cozy apartment with a pull-out couch, and a restaurant named Dino's at the edge of Route 66. Kuo's fluid writing makes you forget that you're reading at all.
