By the author of The Blood Girls. Méira Cook''s poetry and prose inhabit a world of fable and magic. Her cadences are primal, her language ­allusive, her subjects reminiscent of sideshow. In the prose sections, the company of bizarre includes a woman who keeps her mother''s heart in the fridge, a night watchman who dresses his mannequin in the finest lingerie, and a schoolteacher who passes his days with a dead dog tied to his leg. These poems are haunting and often poignant incantations-this first collection, musical and fantastical, introduces an uncommon imagination to Canadian literature.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Méira Cook immigrated to Canada in 1991 at the age of 26. An accomplished poet,The Blood Girls is her first novel. Méira Cook lived many years in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and has returned to Winnipeg after residing in British Columbia.
