Ranging from eloquent insights into rural family life reminiscent of David Adams Richards, to a devil-may-care independence and impish wit, Smith’s first book of poetry is a fresh, energetic look at love, family, and the places where they intersect.
“Smith’s debut work ... is a searing, Generation X-meditation on the value of family and relationships” George Elliott Clarke, Halifax Sunday Herald

Is a special edition of the book: 9781894031301
