Description of this Book

Original poetry by established New Zealand poet. Vaughan Rapatahana's poems are replete with references to his own Indigenous heritage in Aotearoa-New Zealand and his current exiled status as a resident also of both Hong Kong and Pampanga, Philippines. Indeed themes of alienation, marginalization, alternatives scream through his lines - apposite for a man with a Ph.D in existential literary criticism and the work of the author of The Outsider, Colin Wilson.
