In the Buddha Factory
  • Alan Soldofsky, San Jose State University

Captivating and truthful, In the Buddha Factory is rich in detail, honest in tragedy, and poignant in observation. Through a mastery of style and language placed against the backdrop of Silicon Valley, Soldofsky explores the tension of opposites of place and no place, rich and poor, and finite and the limitless. These poems capture the intricacies of family, aging, and identity, and renders them in words both insightful and lyrical.
