In this debut collection, Amy Meng meticulously strips a collapsing relationship for its parts. By dissecting the performativity and vulnerability of a person in love, with a singular precision, Meng's poems are marked by an unflinching drive to confront the most troubling parts of love. Yet rather than being propelled by the broken heart, Bridled is triumphantly lit from the inside by the unexpected, miraculous growth of self.
Amy Meng holds degrees from Rutgers University and New York University. She is a Kundiman Fellow and a poetry editor at Bodega Magazine. Her poetry has appeared in publications including Gulf Coast, Indiana Review, Narrative, New England Review, and The Offing. She lives in Brooklyn.
