Secret Heart

Author(s): Airini Beautrais

NZ Poetry



Sarcastic and ironic on the surface, this collection of autobiographical prose poems seems cynical and introspective at first, but its sharp-tongued sense of humor helps turn the poems outward, embracing society and creating a wry self-portrait of a young woman’s urban world.
