Poetry. Highly energetic and visionary in its dynamic blend of Western and Asian sensuality and heritage, this debut poetry collection by Fiona Sze-Lorrain carries the voice of a polyglot whose cross-cultural experiences in exile embrace the world with a penetrating eye and illuminating wit. At once tender and grounded, Water the Moon inhabits places in Europe and Asia that are both ancient and modern, political and intimate. Drawing inspiration from travel, food, artistic dialogue, struggles and renewed passion in Paris and New York, these delicious poems transcend the limits of memory, striking a balance between imagination and reality with intensity, grace and many surprises.

A kind of 'Ponts des Arts,' these cosmopolitan and compassionate poems span worlds, are rich in startling images, in appetites sharpened by a knowledge of hunger, abstractions perceived as objects moving in a changing light. Water the Moon marks the welcome arrival to our poetry of a cross-culturally complex protean and nuanced new voice -- a stunning debut. Eleanor WilnerFrom the Inside Flap:
How delicate and mysterious, empathetically open and spiritually anchored... they are. Searching to know and to feel intimately... These things I admire so much. The poems, when I think about them -- like remembering a landscape -- seem full of clarity, like the full moon. If the moon had bones, maybe they would be these poems..." Tess Gallagher
