The Ocean Inside Kenji Takezo

This fine, vigorous collection bears itself out, finding grace in its balance over a very large and unpredictable ocean.
Alberto Rios
Winner, 1995 AWP Award Series in Poetry

For the young Kenji Takezo, the innocent surfer who inhabits this collection of poems, balance becomes more than just trying to stand on a wave. It is a way of surviving in a world as precarious as the ocean, a world constantly turning on itself.
