Our Book of the Week is Magnolia 木蘭 by Nina Mingya Powles. 
Shanghai, Aotearoa, Malaysia, London are all places Powles calls home and not-home; from each she can be homesick for another. The poems dwell within the shifting borderland between languages, and between poetic forms, to examine the shape and texture of memories, of myths, and of a mixed-heritage girlhood. Powles's poetry is attuned to the possibilities within layers of written, spoken and inherited words. 
>>Simultaneously published by Seraph Press in New Zealand and Nine Arches in the UK. 
>>I Spy.
