Cynthia Millers debut poetry collection, Honorifics, is an astonishing, adventurous, and innovative exploration of family, Malaysian-Chinese cultural identity, and immigration. From jellyfish blooms to glitch art and distant stars, taking in Greek gods, space shuttles and wedding china along the way, Millers mesmerizing approach is experimental, luscious, and expansive with longing - x27My skin hunger could fill a galaxyx27.nn nnHere, the poetry is interwoven with the words for all the things we honour our loved ones and our ancestors, home and homecomings, and all that is precious and makes us feel that we belong and are beloved. It is also a book that examines contemporary issues of migration in sharp and enquiring relief. Language itself becomes a radical power for reimaging, challenging, and making change, and Millers distinctive and multifaceted poetry creates an extraordinary space for multiplicity and celebration.
