Description

The Crow's Vow is an extraordinarily moving book-length sequence that follows the story of a marriage come undone. Organized into four seasons, the details of the failed relationship are distilled through the physical processes of nature, the buzzing life of wildflowers and birds that the speaker--a wife and mother--studies daily for clues on happiness.Intricately constructed and brimming with resourceful linguistic play, Susan Briscoe's poems are elemental odes on the end of love and its renewal.

Great site

I did my graduate school in Vancouver and really loved it and Canadian media in general. So glad to find this website. This book right here sounds beautiful and hope to pick it up soon. Keep up this good work.
