The Emma Press launches food memoir by Nina Mingya Powles
The Emma Press is publishing Tiny Moons: A Year of Eating in Shanghai, a food memoir by award-winning poet Nina Mingya Powles, at the end of the month.
Tiny Moons is a collection of essays about food and belonging. Powles journeys between Wellington, Kota Kinabalu and Shanghai, tracing the constants in her life: eating and cooking, and the dishes that have come to define her. Through childhood snacks, family feasts, Shanghai street food and student dinners, she attempts to find a way back towards her Chinese-Malaysian heritage.
