Scott Ezell

Praise from Bookish Asia:

“Ezell’s poetic leanings enrich his prose. He can certainly write and A Far Corner (2015), which chronicles his time in Dulan, is full of memorable phrasing. And to get such a lyrical account – both in style and subject matter – from a university press is a welcome surprise.”
