Second Printing. Paperback. Signed by Franny Choi to title page. 9" X 6". 95pp. A touch of shelfwear to color pictorial paper wraps featuring art by James Jean. Binding is firm, tight, and sound. Pages are clean and unread. A highly presentable, signed copy of this collection of poems exploring science, technology, queerness, and Asian American identity by Franny Choi.

Soft Science explores queer, Asian American femininity. A series of Turing Test-inspired poems grounds its exploration of questions not just of identity, but of consciousness—how to be tender and feeling and still survive a violent world filled with artificial intelligence and automation. We are dropped straight into the tangled intersections of technology, violence, erasure, agency, gender, and loneliness.

"Choi creates an exhilarating matrix of poetry, science, and technology." —Publishers Weekly

"Franny Choi combines technology and poetry to stunning effect." –BUSTLE

“…these beautiful, fractal-like poems are meditations on identity and autonomy and offer consciousness-expanding forays into topics like violence and gender, love and isolation.” –NYLON. Very good +. Item #7926
