5.0 su 5 stelle this book is written in a style and language easily understood by both the casual reader and the student 16 luglio 2015
Di Steven Hendrix - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Bunkong Tuon is one of those poets who believe in the democratization and accessibility of literature, that one should not need a PhD to understand poetry. Therefore, this book is written in a style and language easily understood by both the casual reader and the student. But neither is Tuon’s language and imagery empty like so much of the poetry we see today. He writes with a strong and compassionate narrative voice that has something to say and something worth listening to.

Along with the unique story which unfolds throughout Gruel, there is something fundamentally human that connects the reader with each poem in this book: themes of loss, love, growth, and the constant rediscovery of who we are as individuals and our place in society.

For those who are afraid to approach a book of poetry, I challenge you to read this one. For those who have made poetry an integral part of their lives, this book will add to that enrichment. Tuon’s story is an important one, and it’s told in one of the best books of poetry I’ve read in a long time.

5.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful and moving 21 luglio 2015
Di Clint Margrave - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Beautiful and moving. Bunkong Tuon's debut collection, Gruel, is honest, spirited, meaningful poetry with a straightforward economic style that cuts like a weed zapper across the overgrown and pretentious landscape of contemporary American poetry. Buy this book. You won't be sorry.

5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful Book of Poetry 26 agosto 2015
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Bunkong Tuon is a very good and skilled poet. This, his first book, is an excellent start to what will likely be a long and talented career. It's a biographical book arranged largely chronologically about his life as a Cambodian refugee escaping the Khmer Rouge with his grandmother, coming to America to a new life and the challenges that presented. He describes growing up on the East Coast, being teased and bullied because of his Asian heritage. He describes his family's dedication to one another and his mother's death at the hands of Pol Pot. He gives us his moving to the West Coast, to Long Beach, with family members, to a new life there as a teenager. He describes his (bad) career as a student, his jobs working in warehouses and as a custodian. We learn of his going to the Long Beach City Library and his discovery of Charles Bukowski, which changed his life and his learning forever. I can certainly relate to that because I, too, hated most poetry and literature until I discovered Bukowski myself and he opened up a whole new world to me, one in which any type of poetry with any topic was possible. It kick started my career as a poet.

Tuon went on to go to Cal State Long Beach (my alma mater), graduating and going on to graduate school back on the East Coast. Along the way, he meets his wife, who is also an academic and they enjoy discussing literature and academics. After he gets his doctorate, he's surprised to be given a job at a small liberal arts college in New York, where he is today and writes of his students and his teaching, his wife's efforts to finish her own studies, and her attempts to learn Khmer culture. There's a lot of sadness and humor in this book and it makes for a nice, comprehensive look at his life. The book is divided into sections, many of which are titled things like "East Coast" and "West Coast," etc. However, I think his last section, "Cambodia," stands out the most for me. In it, he writes of his relatives in Cambodia and his birth, the destiny of his wife's and his births and lives, his uncle and his aspirations, and what I think is the most powerful and impressive poem, "Inheritance," in which he gives us the Cambodian dead, destroyed temples and monks, child soldiers, and more. It's quite moving.

Overall, this is a strong book of poetry, especially for a first effort. It's narrative poetry, free verse, but not as lively as Bukowski, so if you're expecting gambling, drinking, and whores, you won't find it here. What you will find is a unique perspective on a Cambodian man living in a world different from the one of his youth, a person dealing with ghosts, trying to make a new life with a new spouse in a new profession and enjoying life in the process. And it's a good process to read about. Recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful, Graceful, Sensitive, Brilliant 29 luglio 2015
Di Cassandra G., Long Beach, CA - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
GRUEL is a beautifully written, autobiographic and sensitive account of Mr. Tuon's journey from Thai refugee camps to his adopted homeland of the U.S. The reader is able to get a feeling and glimpse of what it must have been like for him and his family of their refugee and immigrant experiences, beginning when he was a small child, and all the way to his current adult life, with many interesting and astute observations in-between. The language used is evocative of a stranger's experience in a new, strange land: the home grown American reader empathizes with the experience of the "other". The poet's love of literature emanates in many of the poems, as well as testifies to the life-changing, and indeed life-saving, gifts that the discovery of literature has bestowed upon him: his transformation from being a "punk" kid to an erudite scholar.
