In Angels for the Burning, David Mura examines the experience of contemporary Asian-Americans and the various aspects of familial history between first-, second-, and third-generation Japanese-Americans. Mura believes one of poetry's tasks is to explore the challenges to our identities as we encounter various "others" and other visions of ourselves and our world. Mura's new collection of poems attempts to accomplish this task.
