‘Nadine is a poet of rare talent and voice.’
– Elizabeth Reeder, author of Ramshackle
‘She masterfully evokes the often beautiful, sometimes painful specificity of her mixed heritage whilst invoking the universality of being a woman looking for answers to questions that shouldn't need to be asked.'
