    "The poems in this book were selected to reflect the diasporic experience. Antigone Kefala, a Greek from Romania and living in Australia, has lived her life moving between (or within) different languages, cultures and countries. As the editor’s note states, the poems capture artistically and intellectually the two most significant phenomena of the twentieth century: wars and migration. The selection was made from all previous collections by Kefala: The Alien, Thirsty Weather, European Notebook and Absence."
