Braised Pork by An Yu

Marrickville


Intrinsically macabre, Braised Pork is an important piece of poetry. Intertwined with the bitterness of grief and the exploration of loss, An Yu weaves through the difficulty of finding closure and relief from the death of her husband and her mother. Embedded with symbolism, spirituality and culture; Jia Jia's bereavement is found through family, identity and most importantly – braised pork. – Celine
