“Stonehouse’s victim-narrator indictments smash the lid off a philosophical Pandora’s box, exposing deeper questions about victim culture, appropriation, art versus exploitation, and that dubious archive, memory.”
—The Quill and Quire
“All too rarely a collection of poems deeply reminds me of why I love to read poetry. Grace Shiver is such a book. Cathy Stonehouse’s range and wrestle with the intractable interdependence of narrative and death is stunning.”
—Betsy Warland, author of Breathing the Page: Reading the Act of Writing
“Stonehouse takes us on a poetic journey laden with visceral and startlingly vivid images.”
—Fiona Tinwei Lam, author of Intimate Distances and Enter the Chrysanthemum, editor of The Bright Well: Contemporary Canadian Poems about Facing Cancer.
“A powerful, searing book of poems that resonates with the reader long after the last page has been read.”
—Rishma Dunlop, author of White Album, Metropolis, Reading Like A Girl and editor of White Ink: Poems on Mothers and Motherhood.
