another review of *milk tooth bane bone*

Posted by Daniela Elza on Feb 28 2014

The latest issue of Arc Magazine (Issue 73) has a review of my latest book by poet Al Rempel. Al Rempel’s books of poetry are This Isn’t the Apocalypse We Hoped For (Caitlin Press, 2013), understories (Caitlin Press, 2010) and a chapbook called The Picket Fence Diaries (Lipstick Press, 2010).

Here is a little snippet from the review.

“The four titular nouns typify what I mean by gravity and gaps. Elza places these words side by side as effortlessly as setting four small stones in a row on the beach, yet they carry the weight of four silent moons around a planet. Bodies that bend space-time, bodies to gather ideas around. And in the gaps: lightning-quick and neural.”

Thank you for the review!

In other news, tomorrow is Mission’s 7th Annual Writer’ and Readers Festival and I will be giving a keynote at the beginning and and a workshop later in the day in my capacity as Writer-in Residence at University of the Fraser Valley. The festival runs from 10am to 4pm. It is only $40 for the whole day including a lunch and some refreshments. For students it is $20.
