Description

"Philip's questions are difficult, and of an intensity of insistence rarely achieved."? Erin Mouré, Books in Canada
"Philip's writing lives on a linguistic frontier where the essay and poem merge to create a new literary form, uniquely hers. These pieces are a pleasure to read? at once sensual and thought-provoking."? Robin C. Pacific
"[Philip deploys] all thoughtful ways of making readers aware of how history is created. And how it is denied."? Canadian Materials
