Ithaca Island Bay Leaves : A Mythistorima

Author(s): Vana Manasiadis

Special Order

The poems in Ithaca Island Bay Leaves: a mythistorima weave the mythic into the every day. Characters from Greek mythology appear in present-day Wellington, while the poet's grandparents and mother become characters in a magic-real mythology. This debut collection has been described by Stephanie de Montalk as alive 'with acute observation and insight, and the warmth of Vana Manasiadis's alluring, original poetic voice.'
