Kao Kalia Yang's memoir of her father, THE SONG POET, is out today from Henry Holt. It's been receiving some glowing reviews.
"The Song Poet, Kao Kalia Yang’s remarkable new book, is about art, resilience and the opportunities and indignities that come with life in a new country. Yang, a Minnesota resident, dealt with some of these same subjects in her prizewinning debut, “The Latehomecomer: A Hmong Family Memoir.” Her follow-up reaffirms her status as an exceptional storyteller, one whose work reminds us that big, timeless truths reveal themselves when we pay attention to small, specific details." - Kevin Canfield, The Minneapolis Star Tribune
