Synopsis

Spanning across continents and generations, Jason Eng Hun Lee's ambitious first collection maps the poet's formative childhood experiences in Borneo and his subsequent transplantation and coming of age in the UK. Ranging from the lush, verdant countryside of the poet's multiracial upbringing to the proud, iconic national landmarks of London, the collection portrays through gorgeous psychic landscapes the persistent presence of ancestral voices and the desire to embrace multitudes.
