She Who Sleeps With Bones

Written by Carl Phillips for n/a on no date provided

In the deftly searching poems of She Who Sleeps With Bones, Tanya Shirley considers how memory revolts from oblivion, what it can mean to be 'haunted by the fruit' of desire -- sexual, political, the desire for an 'uncomplicated legacy,' for home when home exists only as a memory we cannot trust entirely, a space we fear even as we continue to go back there. These poems startle, stir, provoke equally with their intelligence and their music. A wonderful debut.
