Description

A strong debut collection from Montreal poet Oana Avasilichioaei, Abandon is filled with the richness of a country's history. The poet melds the legends of Romania with its new reality in her vivid and insightful poetry. Dragons rub shoulders with Mountaineers with bad teeth. Women wash carpets in the river, and builders wall women into Monasteries. This is a rich collection and a very promising new voice in Canadian poetry.
