A Week With Beijing by Meg Eden – published February 7th 2015 – is Neon‘s second chapbook. This book of twenty-one poems charts the narrator’s relationship with the mysterious Beijing, a woman who personifies the city for which she is named. We see Beijing through a time of tumultuous change: industries rise and fall, the Olympic games come and go, and her husband purchases a mistress. In these poems her vulnerabilities are laid bare and we catch fleeting glimpses of Beijing as she really is.
