She writes unflinchingly about the grief and shame caused by poverty and alcoholism. At the heart of the book is Croziers fierce love for her mother, Peggy. The narratives of daily life-sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking-are interspersed with prose poems. Lorna Crozier approaches the past with a tactile sense of discovery, tracing her beginnings with a poets precision and an open heart. Also available in hardcover.
