The Colour of Heroines by Lydia Kwa
1994, Paperback

"Lydia Kwa's voice is drenched in memory. Speaking at several junctures, both Singapore-born and Vancouver-habituated, her poetry carries the pain and historic wealth of her passage. It murmurs stories, laconic, profound, stories that tell the whole shapes of lives in a few lines. Family anecdotes, fragments of intimacy, life stories of friends - these poems open windows onto compulsions that form inner landscapes. Equally at home in a finely cadenced erotic lyric or candid and multi-layered prosem, her writing resonates well beyond the edge of the page." - Daphne Marlatt
