In As Though The Gods Love Us, Goh brings a lifetime of love, despair and passion to his work with the skill of a master craftsman. Amidst some of the world's most exotic locales, he uses graceful and lyrical language to understand his world and to bring us closer to ourselves and each other. From Vancouver neighbourhoods to the tropical darkness of a night in Bali, Goh's sensibility touches both people and landscapes, ranging in tone from the epic and political to the intimate and personal.

Hailed as "one of Asia's finest living poets" (Asia Magazine), Goh Poh Seng published his first Canadian book of poetry, The Girl from Ermita: Selected Poems in 1998. As Though the Gods Love Us collects Goh's recent writings since his immigration to Canada. Honest and thoughtful, this is a collection that reflects Goh's experiences as a peripatetic physician who has become intimate with many of the world's cultures, most recently British Columbia's.
"One of Asia's finest poets" stakes out a diverse, unmatched poetic territory through Singapore, Ireland, Russia, Newfoundland, Mexico and British Columbia.
