There is a Chinese proverb that says: "It is more profitable to raise geese than daughters". But geese, like daughters, know the obligation to return home. Born in Hong Kong to an English father and Chinese mother, and raised in England, Sarah Howe's exquisite first collection explores her dual heritage, journeying back to Hong Kong in search of her roots. With extraordinary range and power, the poems build into an enthralling meditation on hybridity, intermarriage and love - what meaning we find in the world, in art, and in each other. Crossing the bounds of time, race and language, this is a dazzling exploration of self and place, of migration and inheritance, and introduces an unmistakable new voice in British poetry.
