Description

Amy LeBlanc's debut poetry collection, I know something you don't know, resides in the intersection of folklore and femininity. With fairy-tale lucidity and fluid voice, the poems in this collection weave through the seams between story and fact. This debut collection is alluring and noxious like hemlock, foxglove, and blooming wildflowers.

Editorial Reviews

"Armed with an unusual eye for beauty, Amy LeBlanc rejects traditional notions of personhood in I Know Something You Don't Know, and instead reworks characters from mythology and folklore to create formidable new avatars. Even if there are moments where LeBlanc "dress[es] disease / in linen gloves," there's no escaping the virulent impact of her narratives, or the full-force of her superb debut." - Jim Johnstone, editor of The Next Wave: An Anthology of 21st Century Canadian Poetry
