Meet Fiona Sze-Lorrain


Consulting Editor Reid Mitchell will review two poetry collections in the September 2010 issue of Cha: Steven Schroeder's A Dim Sum of the Day Before and Fiona Sze-Lorrain's Water the Moon. Apart from Steven's  "I Can Smell Roads", we will also publish Fiona's "A Talk with Mao Tsz-Tung", a piece from her collection.

Although Fiona regards herself as a Parisian, her poetry occasionally reminds one of her Asian heritage. "A Talk With Mao Tse-Tung", for example, is such a reminder. Reid describes the poem:

A Swedish journalist recites Mao's poetry; the Chairman's presence is unavoidable, even years after his death.
Bio: Author of a book of poetry, Water the Moon (Marick Press, 2010), Fiona Sze-Lorrain writes and translates in English, French and Chinese. A guzheng concertist, she performs worldwide. Her CD, In One Take, is forthcoming this fall. One of the editors at Cerise Press, Sze-Lorrain currently co-directs Vif Éditions, a French publishing house in Paris.
