Loop of Jade

Howe, Sarah, author

There is a Chinese proverb that says: 'It is more profitable to raise geese than daughters.' But geese, like daughters, know the obligation to return home. Sarah Howe was born in Hong Kong to an English father and Chinese mother, and raised in England. In her first collection, she explores this dual heritage, journeying back to Hong Kong in search of her roots. With extraordinary range and power, the poems build into an enthralling meditation on hybridity, intermarriage and love - what meaning we find in the world, in art, and in each other
