Books published in Canada have been much harder to acquire in the U.S. since the pandemic started. Shipping fees have gone through the roof. But there are a few recent Mennonite books that I’ve been wanting to buy, so I made an order from McNally Robinson that arrived earlier this week.
Brandt, Di. The Sweetest Dance on Earth: New and Selected Poems. Winnipeg: Turnstone Press, 2022.
Brandt has been one of my favorite poets since I first encountered her work in 2001. I am very glad that she is still writing and that she now has a Selected Poems that encompasses her entire career.
Byggdin, K.R. Wonder World. Winnipeg: Enfield & Wizenty, 2022.
Queer Mennonite novels FTW!
