Tammy Ho Lai-Ming's first collection of poetry has been fifteen years between pen and press. The poems, cross-cultural and personal, paint a broad canvas from love to language, and family to politics. Hula Hooping (Chameleon, 2015) is a valuable addition to the growing corpus of Hong Kong poetry in English.
