About this item
In her seventh book of poetry, Evelyn Lau digs up her deepest fears to unearth the universal hope we all have - of a life that matters.Tumour's power lies in Lau's ability to talk about the things we don't like to talk about, the things we avoid with lotions and potions and self-medication.Tumour compels sober self-reflection and shining light into the corners of the mind. In the book's first part, Lau roots through the forces of life that shaped her - the family legacy, the cultural inheritance. The second part parses how these histories sculpt the present. The rose-coloured glasses of youth are replaced with the lenses of middle age, which sharpen the world's edges. With trenchant observations and unparalleled imagery,Tumour&/strong showcases Lau at the top of her craft.
