Rotten Perfect Mouth

by H.D., Eva

(1 customer review)

CAD $17.00

A wonderfully fresh first book by a writer with an intuitive ear for colourful, musical language. These poems are loose enough for the reader to flop down inside and stay awhile. They are plangent, personal, confessional, noisy, nostalgic, and maybe a little bit broken. They often contain boats and travel and Toronto (street names and railroad tracks, dives and parks and kitchens) because those are the sorts of things Eva H.D. is drawn to. In Rotten Perfect Mouth, readers will discover a writer with her heart on her sleeve and her hand on her pen, capturing the world around her with vibrant immediacy.

Only nominally nautical, but thoroughly recommended.

  1. Ol’ Freshwater Pete

    More lyrical than The Odyssey, more accurate than Lake Ontario Sailing Directions. Eva’s words are hilariously synaesthetic and worth reading. Needs more yawls, but still the best book of poetry.
