"These short poems boldly combine words and images with extraordinary power, drawing on Samoan language and myth, on dreams and memories, and on the daily life of the poet. The density, complexity, variety, and movement of the lines perfectly express the central motif of the black star, a mysterious force that drives the collection."

About the Author:

Albert Wendt is the author of six novels, two books of short stories, three previous collections of poetry and the editor of two anthologies. He is professor of New Zealand and Pacific literature at the University of Auckland.


""For some, the book will be an affirmation: something they recognize, that comes from that which forms around who they are and from what they see and sense around them. For others, it will be a path to some understanding of an unknown parallel universe."
