Author(s): Vaughan Rapatahana

NZ Poetry

Vaughan Rapatahana is in love with language, Maori, Tagalog, Cantonese, and the not-to-be trusted English language.  I love the language he uses in this book - knotty, gnarled, tough.  Assonance, consonance, lines as short as the breath of a man fighting or copulating.  Vaughan Rapatahana and I both love the sounds of language and, even more, the people who speak it, slang it, sign it, sing it, slaughter it, use it honestly.

- Reid Mitchell, poet and consulting editor at CHA: An Asian Literary Journal.
