Joy Is So Exhausting by Susan Holbrook

The Recommend:

Reading Susan Holbrook’s playful, joyfully cerebral poems is like tobogganing down a mountain head-first.

Unquestionably the gift for the word-drunks on your list, this book could kick even the grinchiest grouch out of a long winter’s nap of Canlit exhaustion.

Yes, Virginia, poetry can be fun!

    I saw Susan read that Scream this past summer. I’ve never laughed so hard. So, so smart, this woman.
