回家 Letters Home (Nine Arches Press 2020)
In 回家 Letters Home, one returns to the complexities of being between nations, languages and cultures. Intersecting multiple borders of history and place, these poems examine what it means to return home, and whether it is a return to a location, a country or to a shared dream or language.
From the story of an ice-lantern, a derelict village school in Guizhou to the graffiti and tear gas in Hong Kong’s streets, these poems reveal postcards of memories etched into skin, the fragments of different cultural, historical and linguistic worlds. In writing their way home, these poems navigate the expectations and beliefs which continue to shape, confine, trouble, and liberate us.

charts a girlhood spent growing up in a changing city among glittering ice lanterns and forgotten tenement buildings. These sharp, tender poems retrace their steps through the past and present in Hong Kong and London, contending with what it means to make a new home far away from home.
