A queer / takatapui Maori writer living in Berlin, Germany since 2015, Hinemoana Baker brings a unique perspective both to and from the 'global North'. Drawing on the German meaning of the word 'funken' - to send a radio signal - her latest collection broadcasts unsettling songs ...of rebirth, love, friendship and alienation across homes and languages, to the living and to the dead. Funkhaus is home to big, punchy poems and shimmering delicacy, as well as Hinemoana's trademark humour. This book invites readers to tune out the crackle and static, and dial in their own receivers to a signal that has travelled a long way to reach them, no matter where they are.
