Raised by her maternal grandmother, Australian novelist and bookseller Krissy Kneen was understandably bereft when she died. In the midst of writing a novel, she suddenly found herself paralyzed with grief and unable to write fiction. Instead, she became obsessed with writing poems about her grandmother as a way to assuage her loss. The result is an award-winning collection of poems that charts a cycle of grieving, offering a kaleidoscope of fitful dreams, tender memories and heart-struck musings that shine new light on our own sense of mortality.
