Miriam Lo's work provides a new voice in Australian poetry, that of an Asian-Australian woman, with a woman's sensitivity towards family and the relations between women down the generations. Lo explores these relationships, which run across different cultures, and their forms of giving, with subtlety and superb imagery-in this way finding her own identity and a new element in the identity of contemporary Australia as a whole.---Dennis Haskell
Like the "slow white weeping of trees" Miriam Lo's poems move with sliding grace, a natural fluidity that is at once organic and artful. These poems tell the stories of two women, from two wildly different worlds, whose histories and genes coalesce in the body of the author, as she stands at the far reaches of her family tree and looks back with wisdom, courage, and always with tenderness.---Bronwyn Lea
