I Am Made of War (2017) — Out of Print

I Am Made of War is Kimberly's first collection available in print. This poetry series explores the heart-warming and heart-wrenching moments of growing up Vietnamese-American in the United States. Through poignant moments contained in verse, she confronts racism, sexism, notions of beauty, and coming of age.


flesh (2017)

flesh is Kimberly's second collection available in print. This poetry series by Kimberly Nguyen is an anthem to her womanhood. It contains raw reflections on body image, eating disorders, love, and abuse, with a love letter to her future daughter echoing in the background.

Available in paperback at Barnes & Noble and and available digitally on the iBookstore and Kindle Store.


ghosts in the stalks (forthcoming november 2019)

ghosts in the stalks will be Kimberly’s third collection available in print. In her new earth-shattering poetry collection, Kimberly boldly confronts identity, history, politics, and language at the intersections of colonialism, intergenerational trauma, and conflict. The poems are both visually stunning and form-defying, breathing life into language that is delightfully haunting and becomes the “ghosts in the stalks”. The poems’ etymological focus and brave willingness to return to the source of trauma redefines and re-appropriates what it means to return to one’s roots and forces the dead past into a painful present.
