Boat People

'You New Zealanders, you're all
"boat people".'
- Mai Ky

New Zealand is a nation of boat people. Tim Jones's poems of journeys and returning, of separation and reunion, explore this theme both indirectly and directly. Yet, in the final sections of the book, the boat is pushed out further: into the currents of time and space.
