In No Surrender, her final collection, Ai returns again to the form of the dramatic monologue for which she is best known. Haunting, flinty, and full of characteristic dark humor, these poems display the "raw power, jagged edges and unfliching examination of violence and despair" (New York Times) that Ai has been praised for.A disillusioned Irish nun moves to America, meets Elvis, and rediscovers her faith. An ampute goes on a strange journey during a hurricane. Each of the speakers in this book has a uniquely American story to tell, one that is told with bravery and ambition and that displays the indomitability of the human spirit in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
