Goldfish (Chameleon Press 2013)


From childhood memories, fairytales, taboos, deep-rooted faiths to translated truths, Jennifer Wong’s dream-like and surreal second collection reveals the changing landscapes of Hong Kong and modern China.

“This collection establishes Jennifer Wong as Hong Kong’s finest English language poet of the younger generation without a shadow of doubt.” — Mike Ingham

“[H]andled with great sharpness and delicacy.” — George Szirtes

‘[A] beautiful and perfectly sculpted collection of poems, drawing on the poet’s experiences in Hong Kong and England, and infused with fairytale and folklore. The poems are short, clean and deceptively simple at first, but there’s something very haunting about their sparseness.’ – Lucy Ayrton, Sabotage Reviews
