Shareen K Murayama’s debut collection, Housebreak 

Bad Betty Press July 2022

is a book of wild beauty and probing enquiry. Murayama asks how we live within perennial emergency, where belonging and self-protection converge, how we explain loss to children, what the wind has in common with hate crime. These heartbreaking poems are full of dance-like grace, and gut punches that send the reader off balance. Formally artful and disruptive, they seek out the breaths between words and worlds, applying biology, etymology, astronautics and myth. There is a gentle undoing, a quiet rage here, alongside great tenderness. Housebreak is stunning, apocalyptic, revelatory.


A Review for Hey Girl, Are You in the Experimental Group? by Irene Cooper

Someone Is Going to Get Eaten

Hey, Girl, Are You in the Experimental Group? 
Harbor Editions, 2022

Shareen K Murayama’s chapbook Hey, Girl, Are You in the Experimental Group? expresses a deep interest in form as well as in Cathy Park Hong’s notion that “[Asians] are reputed to be so accomplished, and so law-abiding, we will disappear into this country’s amnesiac fog.” Hong’s assertion serves as epigraph to the poems, which are anything but invisible.
