This is a daring and starkly honest first collection about migratory experience by a young American-Armenian poet. Spanning three generations (1914-2004), "Capillarity" attempts to reconcile the turbulent life of one family, following them through the trauma of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire, and their eventual migration to the United States via the Middle East and the Soviet Union. Told through the eyes of a young, first generation American-Armenian man, this moving collection explores migratory experience, both personal and collective. Vaun's tenderly exposed, lyrical poems grapple with the universal themes of language and identity, death and beauty, isolation and belonging, anguish and hope.
