About this title

Synopsis:

Drawing inspiration from sources as varied as Sappho and Rumi, Marilyn Hacker and Dionne Brand, Slip, Sina Queyras’s first book of poetry, is both an examination of the nature of love and an exploration of form. Contrasting the extreme, excessive, and obsessive nature of physical love how the lover loses herself and like the worst addict is able to justify anything for one more touch with the often-harsh reality of those choices, Queyras has created a breathless, beautiful and powerful work of rare and raw honesty. Love dissolves time, blurs landscapes, and morphs our world, she says. The Question is not only how can we live this deeply with our lover on a daily basis, but how can we not experience each moment so completely? Slip slides with these questions in a sensuous engagement with language, spilling over with images of clarity and lustrous depth.
