The Wrong/Wrung Side of Love


Authored by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, The Wrong/Wrung Side of Love represents one more of the poet’s adventurous shifts in stylistics. In her praise of this collection, Lily Hoang writes: “In conversation with Walter Abish’s Alphabet Africa and Blackalicious’s ‘Alphabet Aerobics’, Desmond Kon’s The Wrong/Wrung Side of Love is a confabulation of desire and a prognosis of tender passion. It is a curling of poetic weight: each line pushes lactic acid through our muscles into euphoria—the euphoria of the lyric—and Kon is a champion power lifter.”
