City of Lost and Found is a collection of 34 prose and poetry that addresses the experience of growing up as a third culture kid. The poems explore the issues of identity, home, and family from the eyes of a speaker who is constantly reflecting on his rootless childhood. The speaker parallels the idea of being a third culture kid to living in an undefinable city where the space enables him to find and lose parts of his selfhood along the years. City of Lost and Found is an attempt to communicate the experience of constantly redefining ourselves and how the issue of our roots, or lack thereof, persists in our lives.
