Our Familiar Hunger

Short-listed: Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize (BC Book Awards) (2019)

Book Description

Our Familiar Hungeris a book about the strength, will, struggle and fortitude of generations of women and how those relationships and knowledges interact, inform, transform and burden. These poems are memories of reclaimed history and attempts at starting over in a new place. They are the fractured reality of trickle-down inheritance, studies of the epigenetic grief we carry and the myriad ways that interferes or interprets our bestattempts.
