 About the Book 

Yun Wang’s poems span ages and cultures to form a unifying vision. With striking, precise images and a strong narrative sense, she presents a cosmos, one for which we should all be grateful. Sam HamillPhysicist-poet Yun Wang’s superb secondMoreYun Wang’s poems span ages and cultures to form a unifying vision. With striking, precise images and a strong narrative sense, she presents a cosmos, one for which we should all be grateful. Sam HamillPhysicist-poet Yun Wang’s superb second collection gives us both intricacy and the cosmos writ large. Wrenching stories of her family’s oppression during the Cultural Revolution are woven together with invocations to the poets Li Bai and Su Dong Po, to Star Trek and to Mahler. Along the way, we travel with the poet through the galaxy, confront the time-space continuum, and spend time with a cat who may be a cousin to Schrödinger’s. “We curve in the curved space,” the poet tells us, and indeed The Book of Totality offers us a universe vivid and liquid, through tales both wrenching and joyous.
