We Play A Game is intimate, poignant, playful, confessional, hilarious, strange, searing, and clever -- often all in the same poem.  Duy Doan writes about being Vietnamese-American, about the Tootsie Pop owl and soccer, about lovers and prayer, language and family.  Winner of the Yale Prize (2017), this book was recently named a Lambda finalist in the bisexual poetry category.
