The third poetry collection of Peter Blair.

Blair's third collection documents the author's experiences living in Thailand. A lyric and insightful collection that explores travel, identity, and memory.

Reviews / Endorsements

“Peter Blair's Farang utilizes the best elements of travelogue, memoir and documentary. These poems are panoramic and introspective, foreign and intimate. Crossing genres and cultures, Blair writes lucidly from the crossroads where memory and empathy intersect.”—Terrance Hayes
