Beneath the Ice
About the book…
Consolidating and deepening the achievement of her debut collection, Snakeskin Stilettos, Beneath The Ice presents a world at once familiar yet deeply troubling; a world of transience, of faces glimpsed in mirrors, of the fleeting underlying the apparently permanent and forever, of surfaces and words only half-understood.
Central to this fluid collection are poems about love, familial duty, and mortality; about a grounding in the promises and failings of the past and yet a determined and hopeful embracing of the future. Clear-eyed and salutary, Beneath The Ice is an important and engaging collection.
