Jernigan, Amanda. Years, Months, and Days: Poems. Windsor, ON: Biblioasis, 2018.
I received a review copy of this book from the publisher. According to the blurb, Jernigan takes a bunch of old Mennonite hymns and makes poems out of them. According to the interview that came with the book, she is not a Mennonite, but found the hymns intriguing nonetheless. It will be interesting to see what she does with them.
Lowrey, Sassafras. Lost Boi. Vancouver: Arsenal Pulp Press, 2015.
I received a desk copy of this fantastic novel from the publisher because I am teaching it in a course on Sexual Outlaws next semester. I already have a copy, but it’s signed by the author so I don’t want to get it grubby by using it in the classroom.
Also, for some reason WordPress’s blogging software has not been letting me add tags to my posts lately, which is why there are none with this post. It’s not that I’ve simply grown lazy and haven’t added them 😉
