Poetry. Asian & Asian American Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. Winner of the 2019 Gold Line Press Poetry Chapbook Contest. A poetry collection meets cookbook; MOTHER TONGUE celebrates the recipe as a testament to women's labor and communal care; transmitted and transformed across borders and generations. Dalton uses the recipe form to trace their return to a mother and nation they have never known; and to evoke the simultaneous intimacy and distance they feel embodied in their family histories. While MOTHER TONGUE centers on a personal experience of transnational adoption; in doing so; it illuminates a greater collective sense of hunger and mourning embedded within global frameworks of food; consumption; and connection.
