Liminal Spaces explores the transience of the borders of personal experience.
This collection of poetry is a patchwork of self – or a poetic idiolect, where the poems are the dust that has gathered on the furniture of my relationships and encounters. Different strands are woven through the collection, ranging from the struggle of being an immigrant in a world with fluid boundaries to the relationship between language, landscape and self.
