Shiner is Eva H.D.'s powerful successor to her critically acclaimed debut, Rotten Perfect Mouth, and includes the Montreal International Poetry Prize-winning "38 Michigans." This is lyrical poetry that is as beautiful as it is angry, bracing in the sharpness of its observations. Whether noting the emotional effects of the financial crisis, the long tail of grief, or the unfolding panorama of a cross-Canada road trip, Eva H.D. measures the world around her in vivid, rambunctious, and musical excursions that ricochet with images and ideas--a surprise at every turn.
