Summary "These poems explore the meaning of home and belonging, and a search for transcendence through love and art. They reflect on what it means to live between cultures and continents, question traditional female roles, ponder over the role of art in life. The poet's search for home leads her to different places: in an Aboriginal home she finds "a lost part of India / that Columbus never found." In Tibet, she imagines a path to the country's freedom. In Another Nirvana she grapples with nostalgia as her memories move between parts of India and Toronto, questioning the meaning of home, departure, and belonging."-- Provided by publisher
