English

Grief, death, infertility. Hinemoana Baker confronts a personal and societal darkness in this new collection of poems—but does so with surprising humor and with an eye that seeks out the unlikely image and an ear that forces us to hear afresh the strangeness in our everyday language.

"The poems are anchored firmly in a modern world and yet range freely over Baker’s past, lyrically examining a bicultural life."  —Dominion Post on Koiwi Koiwi
