Through birthright, travel, marriage, and work, Hilary Tham has experienced an extraordinary range of world cultures, all vibrantly reflected in her latest collection of poems.

Tham’s insights and unusual juxtapositions tell of the meetings of strangers, friends, and lovers; the clashes of differing religions and cultures; and the eternal conflict and misunderstanding between men and women, young and old, modern and traditional. Informed by the likes of Confucius and Buddha, as well as David Letterman and Lorena Bobbitt, her poems and accompanying drawings reveal a humor that is sly, delicate, and when the occasion calls, as sharp as a knife.
