POETRY IN CONVERSATION: Julia Wong Kcomt - In Peru, no one looks like anyone
Lection & Talk
With Julia Wong Kcomt, author Peru and Rike Bolte, author and translator Germany
Julia Wong Kcomt hails from a Chinese-Peruvian family and lives in Lima and Lisbon. The diasporic experience is formative for her texts, which move between Brazilian and Argentine poetry. Critics have praised her poems’ evocative tone, calling them “enigmatically sensual invitations to hypervigilance” (Brandon Shimoda). Julia Wong Kcomt will speak to her translator Rike Bolte about her work.
