Beverley Bie Brahic is a poet with her eye on what is happening between us, between continents on which she lives, between familial relationships, between languages in which she works. In this, her second collection—the first to be published in Canada—her assured and dignified voice speaks of the world around her, creating original and fascinating poems.
