UNLOCKING is Mary-Jane Newton's second book of verse. In this vibrant new collection, Newton evokes a life experienced in cycles, characterized by peaks and troughs, fecundity and sterility, growth and retrenchment, optimism and despair. And punctuating these cycles, an infinite array of new beginnings, or openings, or "un-lockings". The poems in this collection insist that unlocking concerns more than simply change and transition. It involves too the stretching of the mind and body, the catharsis of deep emotion, and the rethinking of ideas and habits.

MARY-JANE NEWTON was born in India and grew up in Germany. Her first collection of poetry, Of Symbols Misused (2011), was also published by Proverse Hong Kong, and her work has appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies internationally. She is Publishing Manager at Macmillan Publishers China and currently lives in Hong Kong with her husband and daughter.
