2014 Robert Kroetsch Award For Innovative Poetry Winner!

How does a place get in your bones? How do you become the bones of a place? Hidden City unearths memories that don’t want to be found.

A poem cycle that speaks through disembodied voices—the parts of ourselves we don’t want to acknowledge, but which refuse to be silenced—Hidden City’s post-lyrical form opens a secret door to the experience of nostalgia for a traumatic past.
