Praise for Thing Is:

Shortlisted for the 2019 Vine Award for Poetry

“In Thing Is, poet Suzannah Showler writes beautiful, witty, heartbreaking poems that seek answers to impossible questions. These are metaphysical poems, each its own investigation and exploration.” —Mary MacDonald, Pique

Praise for Suzannah Showler’s poetry:

 • “Showler’s work is evidence of a lively and flourishing imagination.” — Toronto Star
 • “[Showler’s] navigation between the funny and the broken is both startling and captivating, and makes us wonder whether the two are more similar than we might think.” — CV2
 • “Her poems are distinguished by their cultural awareness . . . without losing sight of the human ethos that defines modern living.” — Publishers Weekly
 • “Spiked with snarky wit and punctuated by slivers of tenuous hope. The writing is tight, poignant and accessible.” — Maisonneuve
 • “A bold, self-assured voice, but Showler proves she has more than earned it. This is the real thing.” — Lemonhound
