Gravities of Center (Arkipelago Books, 2003)ARKIPELAGO PUBLISHING is proud to announce the release of Gravities of Center by Barbara Jane Reyes. Contained in this collection are poems and prose pieces which exhibit Barbara’s oftentimes eclectic style / sensibilities and willingness to experiment with form and language. With serious and playful poems very much rooted in San Francisco Bay Area urban and suburban cultures, settings, and vernaculars, a geographically faraway Philippines is never absent from this Pilipina American writer’s consciousness. Consistent throughout Gravities of Center are themes of longing, desire, diaspora, postcoloniality, feminism, and coming of age.
