TIGHTROPE: SELINA TUSITALA MARSH

The launch of Selina Tusitala Marsh’s third poetry collection Tightrope, longlisted for the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards, coincided with her taking up the mantle of Poet Laureate – “a wonderful opportunity to extend the poetic page and stage to this nation’s multi-coloured, multi-hued voices”, she said. An extraordinary poet, performer and advocate, Marsh’s work combines a warrior fierceness with humour, and explores the delicate and dangerous ways in which we navigate the abyss of forgotten memory. She speaks with Adam Dudding.
