Poems by a Canadian, now resident in Hong Kong, about China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
Painting the Borrowed House is Kate Rogers's first book of poetry. It is an honest, fresh account by a complex and sensitive woman who has travelled from her native Canada to see and experience new places, people and cultures. – This collection follows her journey as she explores Asia, her life changes and she finally commits herself to remain, learning to live with her choices in a new culture, the "Borrowed House" of the title.
Kate sees beyond the usual dimensions of every day and is open to strange and novel experiences. She reaches out to us through these poems and creates gentle and poignant bonds with her readers. Her perceptions encourage us to be conscious of the archaeology and layered structure of our own lives.
Painting the Borrowed House, Kate Rogers' second book published in the space of two years, is supported by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
Full of epiphanies, vivid emotion and surprise.
