AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This anthology of stories and 'poems re-envision the myths, traditions and lived reality of 'Pacific-ness'. The voices in some of the poems and stories are marked with sorrow - for children who have moved away, for parents who never quite manged to fit in, for the ongoing effects of colonisation and globalisation.' The work also has threads of humour 'and a joyful sense of what it is to be alive'. (Source: backcover)
