Rachel Rose follows her award-winning first book with a dazzling, urgent collection of new poems that look unflinchingly at our errors and our longings, in images that range from the disturbing to the spectacular.

Rachel Rose’s first book of poetry, Giving My Body to Science, was a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Award, the Pat Lowther Award, and the Grand Prix du Livre de Montreal, and won the Quebec Writers’ Federation A.M. Klein Prize… More about Rachel Rose
Notes on Arrival and Departure investigates transformative moments. As a collection, it meditates on the unexpected shifts and unanticipated paths that our lives take as we navigate through birth and death, grief and sudden grace. These are poems that illuminate those points which divide our lives into “before” and “after,” those pivotal metamorphoses which leave us irrevocably changed. –Rachel Rose
