    Title: Tightrope
    Author: MARSH SELINA TUSITALA

    Built around the abyss, the tightrope, and the trick that we all have to perform to walk across it, Pasifika poetry warrior Selina Tusitala Marsh brings to life in Tightrope her ongoing dialogue with memory, life and death to find out whether `stories¿ really can `cure the incurable¿. In Marsh¿s poetry, sharp intelligence combines a focused warrior fierceness with perceptive humour and energy, upheld by the mana of the Pacific. She mines rich veins ¿ the tradition and culture of her whanau and Pacific nations; the works of feminist poets and leaders; words of distinguished poets Derek Walcott and Albert Wendt ¿ to probe the particularities of words and cultures. Selina Tusitala Marsh¿s Tightrope takes us from the bustle of the world¿s largest Polynesian city, Auckland, through Avondale and Apia, and on to London and New York on an extraordinary poetic voyage.
