Migrants and the ghosts they bring with them from their old homes to their new one - that's the theme of the new poetry collection from Siobhan Harvey.

Ghosts is the Auckland writer, editor and AUT creative writing lecturer's eighth book.

These include Cloudboy that won the Kathleen Grattan Poetry Award in 2014.

Siobhan is originally from the UK and often writes about the migrant experience.   Lynn Freeman talks with her about Ghosts, and Siobhan starts by reading the title poem.

Ghosts, a collection of poems by Siobhan Harvey is an Otago University Press publication.
