Ame Ai

Author Ame Aiabout this book: Fringe and Frivolity is about fringe groups (e.g., Goths, Korean adoptees, and the GLBT society) and the fringes of the mind. One section, entitled "Fringe: Adoptee Universe" focuses on "coming out" as a transracial adoptee.

Other poems, from the Fringe section, focus on introspection and protest through free verse or lyrical form. Most of the poems in the Frivolity section are fun and silly, and some poems use onamotopoiea and other fun poetry devices. Overall, there is a wide variety of moods and poetic styles throughout the book, which should keep the reader entertained.

"What gives Fringe and Frivolity its moral victory (as well as an artistic one, because the poems are quite good) is that you turn over old ideas and beliefs." --Gabriel Ricard, Author

Ame Ai, poetess, has been compared to many famous people throughout her career, namely Phil Collins, Erica Jong, Nicole Krauss, and Allen Ginsberg.

"Her poetry is comparable to Allen Ginsberg's Howl in the 1960s." --Yearn Hong Choi, founding president of the Korean Poets and Writers Group in the Washington Area
