WEST-EAST itself is a narrative poem set in roughly contemporary San Francisco: Perry, a schoolteacher from Chicago, and Pao Ling, a student film-maker from Taiwan, begin an love affair, encouraged by Perry's Russian landlady Sonya, and by Cordelia, a friend of Pao Ling with whom Sonya eventually pairs. The men face jealousy from a gay acquaintance; and the romance might end by the clash of Perry and Pao Ling's respective cultures, with the pressure Pao Ling feels to return to Taiwan and marry. [via]
