Awabi by Mandy-Suzanne Wong

Winner of the 2018 Digging Press Chapbook Series Award. Mandy-Suzanne Wong deftly explores the complex world of the ama—ocean women, mostly elderly, who eke out a living while diving deep to capture abalone, snails, and otherworldly sea creatures for food. Suffused with lyrical imagery and profound longing, Wong creates evocative moments of love, pride, jealousy, misunderstanding, and sacrifice in this duet of short stories. 

The Digging Press Chapbook Series features pocket-sized books of 40 to 60 pages, perfect bound with square spines, as well as, original cover art and layout design. Supplies are limited.
