All Roads Lead to the Sea is a first collection of poetry from a young Bulgarian immigrant poet. Her work had already attracted considerable attention, with a special issue of Poetry New Zealand featuring her poems. Her moody, evocative poems brilliantly convey the rootlessness and restlessness of the immigrant, the mingled sense of loss and wonder in the new land, the nostalgia and the longing, the hopes and the memories. The three parts of the book mirror a passage from dislocation to exploration to looking forward, with the last part dominated by the image of the sea. These haunting, powerful poems introduce a fresh and original talent.
