Poems by Franny Choi, illustrated by Justseeds member Jess X. Snow. Read and listen to a sample here, "To The Man Who Shouted Pork Fried Rice To Me On The Street"

“A thin, muscular book that crackles with energy.” — The Providence Phoenix

“Funny, heartbreaking, and unpretentiously intelligent.” — Ploughshares

“A haunted house with windows opening onto surprising moments of beauty and joy.” — Muzzle Magazine

"In this electrifying debut, Franny Choi leads readers through the complex landscapes of absence, memory and identity. Beginning in loss and ending in reflective elation, Floating Brilliant Gone explores life as a brief impossibility, "infinite/until it isn't. Punctuated with haunting illustrations by Jess X. Snow, Choi's poems read like lucid dreams that jolt awake at the most unexpected moments." (Write Bloody Publishing 2014.)
