Kapka Kassabova is a young, Bulgarian $emigr$e poet, now living in
New Zealand, who writes in English but with a European imagination.
These poems in her third collection explore the emotional and
spiritual territory of the traveler and the dispossessed, the
spaces between memory and being, exploration and doubt, and desire
and loss. Her novel, Reconnaissance (1999), won a Commonwealth
Writers' Prize for Best First Book.
