When the Barbarians Arrive

Alvin Pang

When the Barbarians Arrive

This is a new and selected works, with some poems taken from Alvin Pang's previous three collections. The selection ranges from unsentimental love poems to sharply satirical writing; here are poems that are wry and shrewd, intelligent and sensitive. They mock, celebrate and unsettle, are generous and beautiful, full of paradoxes, logic and illogicality, and are at once recognizably national and international in reach, offering a fresh edgy energy to the wave of urban poetry emerging from Singapore.

Fast Talking PI

Selina Tusitala Marsh

Fast Talking PI

Fast Talking PI (pronounced pee-eye) reflects the poet's focus on issues affecting Pacific communities in New Zealand, and indigenous peoples around the world including the challenges and triumphs of being afakasi [mixed race]. The book is structured in three sections, Tusitala (personal), Talkback (political and historical) and Fast Talking PIs (dialogue). She writes as a calabash breaker, smashing stereotypes and challenging historic injustices; also exploring the idea of the calabash as the honoured vessel for identity and story. Her aesthetics and indigenous politics meld marvellously together.
