Katerina Jeng discusses Gospel of a Whole Sun, in conversation with Yumi Sakugawa

Katerina Jeng

Gospel of a Whole Sun is a moving collection of poetry chronicling one woman's journey of self-discovery over the course of three pivotal years. It documents the aftermath of a traumatic breakup, navigating anti-Asian violence during a global pandemic, coming out, and, ultimately, falling in love with life again.

A joyous and inspired debut from a gifted creator and healer, Gospel of a Whole Sun is a poignant look at the relationship of art-making to personal liberation. (Andrews McMeel Publishing)

Yumi Sakugawa (she/they) is a second-generation Japanese-Okinawan interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles and the author of several published books including I THINK I AM IN FRIEND-LOVE WITH YOU, YOUR ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO BECOMING ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE, FASHION FORECASTS, and THERE IS NO RIGHT WAY TO MEDITATE. Her multimedia installations have been exhibited at the Japanese American National Museum, the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building, and the Peabody Essex Museum. Her forthcoming affirmation card deck COSMIC COMFORT will be coming out in January 2025.
