QUOTES OF NOTECosmophilia
“This very rich world of images & sounds offers something of a gift to English-speaking Canadian readers … it is [a] sense of brokenness, in language, in inheritances, in personal & public politics that haunts the various stories inherent in the longer poems … Some poems develop an imaginative connection with older languages … These poems cover a lot of ground … Cosmophilia is full of moments [that] strike to the heart. It’s a rich & rewarding first collection by a writer I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from.”
– Eclectic Ruckus
