Seth Seong – Week 13 Chapbook Chart 2020

City, Ruby is a chapbook with an existential look inside the modern city persona – a life affected by ever-accelerating technology and the inhumane perception against the poor and working. But under it all, there are moments of pure human connection when two souls find escape within each other. This collection is inspired by the character of Seattle, the Emerald City, and the constant yet futile desire to escape from it. It is a searching question into the hidden world of suits and gowns, of galas and the view from the skyline.

This is first collection from rising Seattle author Seth Seong, written directly from the heart, without pretence. He utilises both the Korean Sijo form, and unstructured prose.

Foreigners have the hungriest of senses. Arriving somewhere new there is the immediate onslaught of a different language, the smell of the place itself, the dress of the people and their comportment. One might call it uneven terrain, and as the stranger makes their way into this other world, there will be untidy loose ends of comprehension. This outsider isn’t dependent upon travel though, it’s a state of mind which casts a wide net over the everyday furniture of life and our own changing conditions. Balance in the moment might be achieved through the simple act, the real pleasure, of taking it all in.
