Book Review: Onjana Yawnghwe’s The Small Way

I was privileged to be asked to write a review for The Ormsby Review on Onjana Yawnghwe‘s fascinating book, The Small Way. An excerpt:

Onjana Yawnghwe The Small Way“We were speaking then of necessary journeys, of the way the reading of a book might become a crossing-over into other people’s territory, for instance into those migrations that are within the smallest interiors, such as the beginning and then the end of a marriage, or of any relationship, real or imagined, and into a journey that brings us to memory, a closing-shut-open door that leads to explorations of the nature of loss.

A new and specific kind of loss is the subject of this haunting book of poem-vignettes, The Small Way, by a Vancouver writer who is also a nurse: Onjana Yawnghwe.”
