Shortlisted for the Raymond Souster Award, League of Canadian Poets
Shortlisted for the Canadian Authors Association Award for Poetry
"This is no simple book of poetry. It is sensual and dark, a feast for the senses. Her grace with language is sublime." - Canadian Poetries
"The gothic, textured, ornately spare cover design is gorgeous and the experimental entrances into Dorothy Molloy?s poems are fascinating. I adore form and fiddlings with it and Graham shows what can happen when one reads a deceased poet?s work so deeply that their spirit in a sense infiltrates, shaping not only the content, but more importantly, the structure of the work." - The Relentless Adventures of OCD Crow
"She has the technical mastery to make the glosas disappear - what I mean is that the technique vanishes and we are left with strong, vibrant poems that aren't bridled by technique. There is humour, wit, sensual experience, fantasy and grace in these poems. Hard to ask for more than that. It is also a delight to read, to recommend." - Michael Dennis Poet
