In The Carrying, Ada Limón “does not ignore the world’s cruelties but tries not to be held hostage by them,” according to the Guardian. The collection of poems captures ambiguous moments between the rapture of youth and the grace of acceptance. Join her in conversation with Cynthia Dewi Oka as she explores what it means to live in an imperfect world.

Dalam The Carrying, Ada Limón “tidak mengabaikan kekejaman dunia tetapi berusaha untuk tidak disandera oleh mereka,” menurut Guardian.
