BOOK OF THE MONTH
Bruises, Birthmarks & Other Calamities by Nadine Klassen. Klassen is truly one of the best contemporaries in this poetry community and her work around family, trauma, survival, the past and the self is phenomenal. Reminiscent of Ocean Vuong, Emily Dickinson and e.e. cummings, this collection is a joy to savour and return to.
