Paris Rosemont’s debut collection, Banana Girl, traverses topics that are at once deeply personal, yet universal – explorations of love, loss and heartbreak, lust, sex and violence, the complexity of shifting power dynamics, peppered with a smattering of social commentary. As a second generation Asian-Australian, Paris also explores issues of identity and displacement, reclaiming power through her literary expression.
I hope these poems will speak, sing and howl to you, in the way that they speak, sing and howl to me.
Paris’s poetry sparkles with originality of voice, integrity of feeling, sass, sensuality, depth of thought, rebellion, and tenderness.
