  • Description
  • About the Author
  • Authored by Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé, The Wrong/Wrung Side of Love represents one more of the poet’s adventurous shifts in stylistics. In her praise of this collection, Lily Hoang writes: “In conversation with Walter Abish’s Alphabet Africa and Blackalicious’s ‘Alphabet Aerobics’, Desmond Kon’s The Wrong/Wrung Side of Love is a confabulation of desire and a prognosis of tender passion. It is a curling of poetic weight: each line pushes lactic acid through our muscles into euphoria—the euphoria of the lyric—and Kon is a champion power lifter.”

  • Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé is the author of an epistolary novel, a hybrid work, a neo-noir proem suite, and six poetry collections. Founding editor of Squircle Line Press, Desmond has edited over fifteen books and co-produced three audio books, several pro bono for non-profit organizations.
