A queer / takatapui Maori writer living in Berlin, Germany since 2015, Hinemoana Baker brings a unique perspective both to and from the 'global North'.
In this compelling second collection from one of New Zealand's most exciting rising poets, Hinemoana Baker amplifies what's usually whispered, magnifies the microscopic and x-rays the mundane.

"The Transit of Venus on 6 June 2012 was the inspiration for an international, multi-layered poetry project. New Zealand's status as the Guest Country of Honour at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair was a good opportunity to realise it.
