PAUL TAN
paperback

As the poet navigates through middle age, beset by questions on ageing, love and loss, and the incipient awareness of mortality, these poems give shape and meaning to those attendants, oft-unspoken anxieties. Through coy irony, imagined personas and leaps of creative faith, Tan’s fifth collection of poetry interrogates the redemptive possibilities of art, promising a journey through the familiar and the off-kilter.
