Book Review: Under the Mulberry Tree

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

"Under the Mulberry Tree is testimony and testament. This groundbreaking volume’s poems, essays, and stories evoke ineffable intergenerational pain and an ever-present absence. Yet it celebrates, even revels in the diversity of global Uyghurs navigating the “diasporic dilemma.” The richness of Uyghur diaspora art comes through in images of mournful comfort juxtaposed with stories singing with anger. A message echoes beneath each page: something is being born.”
