“No matter in what tradition, genre, or period, one of the traits all anabasis literature shares in common is the obligation to be at once familiar, bizarre, and transportive. The place (which in Hsiung’s hands is its own manifold utterance) must spiritually and physically convince for in Hell(as with this world) conditions demand that the body and spirit be wayfarers together. In Valerie Hsiung’s efg (immediately the title is one of its beautiful agonies) a system of eruptions, lyric cycle, and Hsiung’s signature adamant patience fall together into a underworld where the fact of predecessors (both mythic and literary) abound in the same industrious and orchestral way cells in a living structure do. Efg is made out of instinct, fortitude, tribute, and a blasting poetical vision already years in the making and very much its own.” –Peter Richards
