- Author: Shirley Geok-Lin Lim
Lim’s poetry displays a unique sense of place and time. Her belief in the acceptance of cultural multiplicity is reflected in work that evokes her Malaysian childhood and family but which also casts a coolly observant eye over America, where she now lives and works. With an introduction by Professor Laurel Means, Monsoon History contains the complete text of Crossing the Peninsula, winner of the 1980 Commonwealth Poetry Prize. It includes selections from her previous volumes Modern Secrets and No Man’s Grove, providing an excellent overview of her work to date.
