A finely crafted collection from a gifted poet which offers a fascinating insight into both the author’s own relationship with Japan and the country’s history through a series of powerful and richly lyrical poems.
– Anna Saunders

These often precise, vivid, and stylistically diverse poems explore the historical and contemporary variousness of Japan. They are engaged closely with Japanese art, literature, landscape, and people, all filtered through the perspective of someone who is learning her way inside. They might even whet your appetite for a visit.
– Rory Waterman

Painting my Japan’ is a gem of a collection. Spare, sensual images evoke a whole country’s places and people. Myth, history, nature, society and the present moment fill these pages, which bring to life one poet’s generously shared experience of a loved world. These poems are enhanced by beautiful calligraphy and a glossary which illuminates throughout, leaving us keen to find out more.
