This collection deals with wandering--- shifts from East to West,
and the borderlands in between.
Chance encounters happen, identities become uncertain, elusive
relationships form and then drift apart. These poems have a distinctly
Australian feel, as they retrieve with
precision the memories of growing up and exploring the Australian
outback, then relocation to urban environments as an adult. Yet, from
time to time, the stirrings of
connections with a Chinese past suddenly manifest themselves as solid
fragments of the poetic imagination of the writer.
