About this title


Finally, all of Tham's "Chinese mother" poems in one book including ten new ones! "Tham is able to capture the idiosyncratic, topsy=turvy world-view, a combination of superstitious and unthought=out religious beliefs, housewifely thrift, termagent courage and humorous generational differences of a particular Southeast Asian woman. Some of these poems are absolutely hilarious."- Shirley Lim says in Calyx.

About the Author:

Born and raised in Malaysia, Hilary Tham is an artist and author of eight books of poetry and a memoir on the shaping of a writer's mind, Land With No Name: Memoirs and Poems of a Malaysian-Chinese Girlhood. She grew up a Taoist, became a Catholic on graduating her Convent school, tried existentialism, converted to Judaism upon marriage to an American Jew. She lives in Arlington, Virginia and teaches creative writing.
