My Island's The House I Sleep In At Night (Pdf)

"Being and islander means that you aren't like everyone else," write Laurie Brinklow in her new book, My island's the house I sleep in at night. Bounded by water, you can live your life with certainty knowing where your edges are. Drawn from interviews with artists, writers, and musicians from Newfoundland, Tasmania, and Prince Edward Island, these poems capture what it means to be an islander. To know every rock and tickle, "the sea your road/the hole in the sky/your light to travel by."

In her highly anticipated second collection of poems, Brinklow weaves stories and images with her own poetic imaginings. These are poems steeped in community memory, about belonging to a place like nowhere else, a kitchen party full of islanders telling stories about the patch of rock they call home.
