Entangled Islands by Serie Barford


In this new collection of poetry and short stories, beloved Pacific writer Serie Barford reflects on the entangled history of New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Here peoples and cultures meet and intertwine in a medley of memories, imagination and genealogy.

In New Zealand, a cherished aunt dies, an old woman recites ghost stories from her girlhood in a Samoan village, children play skipping games and the author battles racism, while through the author’s travels to New Caledonia we are drawn into the elegant life and times of Lady Day and witness a tsunami near-miss. Entangled Islands invites the reader to enter a lyrical, vividly drawn world.
