‘At times tender, at times searing…’ a comment by Lydia Kwa

‘At times tender, at times searing, Holier Than Life is a collection of poems that refuses to withhold truth-telling, exposing the brutalities of those in oppressive regimes, and pleading for the plight of women and children. A poetic chant laced with bitterness and celebration, these poems confront us with the urgency of suffering, and the need to respond with compassion.’
