October 2019

Birmingham-based publisher the Emma Press is launching The Goldfish in Kyoto on 26th October 2019. Written by Ikhda Ayuning Maharsi Degoul, an Indonesian poet based in Japan, The Goldfish is to join the Emma Press’ list of award-winning poetry pamphlets.

With her experimental, playful poems which capture the voice of a goldfish, Ikhda undergoes a surreal exploration of femininity in the new world – one which she describes as being of ‘cross-cultural thought and divergence’ – by drawing on the dualities of the life of a goldfish and the life of a woman.
