Lisa Robertson has applied her rhetorical skills to the epic, and what emerges is a spectacular, subversive vision of the world through female eyes. This is an act of sheer writerly bravado, taking and tweaking the form, enlarging the world between the covers of a book. The language is lush, the concept superactivated, growing over the page at an astonishing clip.
Lisa Robertson is also the author of The Weather, XECLogue, and Occasional Work and Seven Walks from the Office for Soft Architecture. She lives in Vancouver.
