Anita Lahey's second collection, Spinning Side Kick,is a hard-knuckled look at the other half. These lively poems mix a girl-about-town cockiness with an all-too-rare emotional honesty about men, love, and relationships. Whether the subject is a one-man chimney demolition, the lifelong fidelity of seahorses, a lover at war in Afghanistan or a kickboxing match, Lahey confronts the enduring disconnect between the sexes in a language that is slangy and quick, punctuated with jabs. She eyes those moments-in a day, in a life-when the normal clues we rely on disappear, shifting the line between domesticity and danger. In Spinning Side Kick, a talented poet returns with sharper aim.
Anita Lahey's previous collection of poems, Out to Dry in Cape Breton [Signal Editions, 2006], was a finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry and the Ottawa Book Award. Editor of Arc Poetry Magazine from 2004 to 2011, Anita is also a longtime magazine contributor. She lives in Fredericton, NB.
