ABOUT PHOTOS OF THE SKY
Saradha’s new collection, Photos of the Sky, starts with a declaration; ends in realisation. In between is a journey of reaching across the Tasman, shifting to a new home, reaching a place of disquiet and starting again. The full spectrum of emotions brings with it rain, sweat, tears, wildflowers and the promise of snow.
Saradha Koirala is a writer and teacher living in Melbourne, after relocating from Wellington. This is her third poetry collection, after Wit of the staircase and Tear Water Tea. She also published a novel, Lonesome when you go, in 2016.

And David Bowie is here too!
