Poetry, Canadian authors (Non-fiction)
In her debut collection of poetry, Arielle Twist unravels the complexities of human relationships after death and metamorphosis. She explores, with both rage and tenderness, the parameters of grief, trauma, displacement, and identity. Weaving together a past made murky by… uncertainty and a present which exists in multitudes, Arielle Twist poetically navigates through what it means to be an Indigenous trans woman, discovering the possibilities of a hopeful future and a transcendent, beautiful path to regaining softness. 2019.
