The stars are dying one by one, fading into darkness held back only by the voice of a single star singer. Drawing on mythology from Polynesian, various Asian and Inuit cultures, Star Singer follows Mina who traverses a frightening world of dying stars and spirits in search of hope and a song. As she walks unknowing in her departed mother’s footsteps, she learns about the nature of truth, history and memory; the irreplaceable loss of knowledge; the value of stories; and the interweaving journeys of mothers and daughters.

"Radiant and transcendent."

“His poems are doubled-forests, like Magritte or early Taoist landscape paintings; you journey outside in one direction admiring the foliage, the arrangements of shadow and landscape, then suddenly, you fall inside into voracious vortices of light, fire, voice, and wisdom—"
