In this first poetry collection from Dunedin writer and historian Heather Bauchop, an unnamed man navigates his past across distant oceans to the cold island of his family; the same man, working as an historian imagines and reconstructs the history and physical fabric of an 1882 gentleman farmer's residence; a found manuscript discovered beneath the floor gives voice to an unidentified woman whose life was lived out in a cell at the rear of this residence. A spare narrative poem in three voices, 'Remembering a Place I've Never Been' examines our relationship with the past, the construction of memory and history.
