Magnolia, 木蘭

Nina Mingya Powles

Shanghai, Aotearoa, Malaysia, London — all are places poet Nina Mingya Powles calls home and not-home; from each she can be homesick for another. A gorgeous bittersweet longing and hunger runs through the poems in this new collection from one of New Zealand’s most exciting poetic voices. In Magnolia, 木蘭 Powles explores her experience of being mixed-race and trying to find her way through multiple languages: English, Mandarin, Hakka, Māori. Powles uses every sense to take us on a journey through cities, food and even time, weaving her story with the stories of women from history, myth and film. 

Magnolia, 木蘭 was shortlisted for the Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection 2020, and is longlisted for the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards 2021 in the poetry section. Read a review of Magnolia, 木蘭 in The Guardian.

Your copy will also come with last eclipse, a limited edition risograph print made by Nina Mingya Powles.
