About this product
- DescriptionThis title was the winner of the Sunday Times/ PFD Young Writer Award 2015. It was shortlisted for the T. S. Eliot Prize 2015. It was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for the Best Collection 2015. There is a Chinese proverb that says: 'It is more profitable to raise geese than daughters.' But geese, like daughters, kw the obligation to return home. In her exquisite first collection, Sarah Howe explores a dual heritage, journeying back to Hong Kong in search of her roots. With extraordinary range and power, the poems build into a 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 an enthralling exploration of self and place, of migration and in heritance, and introduces an unmistakable new voice in British poetry.
- Author BiographySarah Howe was born in Hong Kong in 1983 to an English father and Chinese mother, and moved to England as a child.

Loop of Jade is her first collection, which won the T.S.
