Teethmarks offers a cutting examination of contemporary society, from the personal to the global. The "fuzzy" simplicity of childhood at the book's outset is deftly shadowed by details of cigarette butts in the girl's room, the scent of burning leaves and teeth marks on Barbie dolls (From the dog, Terry assures her, when he was a puppy.) From there on in, Queyras embarks on a dynamic exploration of form in poems sharply aware of shifting boundaries, groundlessness, the seedy pastoral of childhood and the difficulty of maintaining community and family in our increasingly fragmented lives. Teeth Marks merges lives constructed by B-movies and the daily news, transposing their black-and-white "realities" with palettes of vital colour.

About the Author:

Sina Queyras' first book of poetry, Slip, was published by ECW Press in 2001. She has been a finalist in the CBC National Literary Competition several times for both poetry and fiction. Her poetry has been published widely in anthologies and journals in Canada and the US. Sina grew up in Winnipeg, Vancouver Island and Terrace, BC, was educated at the University of Victoria, UBC and Concordia, where she received her M.A. in creative writing. She currently lives in Brooklyn, teaches creative writing at Rutgers University, and spends her summers in Toronto.

Review:

"Slip is an unnervingly breathless read. . . . It is tender, intelligent, honest, political, funny, and even steamy. . . . a generous collection of lush, lyrically detailed poetry."
-Sara Cassidy, The Malahat Review

"2002's sexiest book of poetry."

-Tanis McDonald, Prairie Fire
