Joseph O. Legaspi

$16.00 Paperback, 978-1-933880-63-1



Celebrates the courageous journey across boundaries, the intersections between liminal spaces, and the tenacity to endure

Threshold enters a landscape of seemingly perpetual in-between, crossing from conventionality to queerness; exploring the fluidity of gender; and translating the hard hold of family. The collection meditates on passageways and what it means to arrive at, and pierce through, thresholds—between countries, past and future, and the threat and security of love.



JOSEPH O. LEGASPI, a Fulbright and NYFA fellow, is the author of a previous collection, Imago (CavanKerry Press and University of Santo Tomas Press), and two chapbooks: Aviary, Bestiary and Subways. His poems have appeared in the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day, jubilat, Orion, Painted Bride Quarterly, and Salt Hill. He is the cofounder of Kundiman, a nonprofit organization serving Asian American writers. He lives in Queens, New York, with his husband.
