A thin volume with an attractive cover – it slips easily into the purse for the morning commute. A collection of poems that is just as charming read to onself as read aloud.
Chernobyl, bad jobs, family connections, identity, swimming and beauty written against the alternating backdrops of Vancouver, Regina, Belarus.
Quick but not furtive, there is at least one poem that is a fabulous read outloud just before heading to work.
For anyone who craves poetry, a lovely and inspiring gift.
