Book Review: Āria

by Jessica Hinerangi
Review by Māia

An ode to spirited girlhood, takatapui dizziness and healing with community, Āria is full of poems that are loving, furious, sexy and wise. For anyone who is navigating contradicting identities, who longs for a missing part of themselves, who is devoted to taking back what is rightfully ours. Hinerangi’s poetry tells a journey of reclamation that is so vulnerable and unshielded that it connects to all, touching and holding everything at once.
