In To Love the Coming End, a disillusioned author obsessed with natural disasters and 'the curse of 11' reflects on their own personal earthquake: the loss of a loved one. A lyric travelogue that moves between Singapore, Canada, and Japan, this debut from Leanne Dunic captures what it's like to be united while simultaneously separated from the global experience of trauma, history, and loss that colour our everyday lives.

Praise for To Love the Coming End

"Leanne Dunic's meditative collection To Love the Coming End embodies Yukio Mishima's characterization of Japan--her writing is at once elegant and brutal. In these fervent poems of disparate landscapes are catastrophic feelings of sadness, loss, and alienation." --Doretta Lau, author of How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun?

"Elegant and spare, Dunic's elegiac writing touches on grief that is both personal and societal. She reminds us that no love is wasted." --Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang, author of Sweet Devilry

"Dunic has created a collection of tightly mapped poetic fault lines, topographies of loss and absence spanning immense yet intimate geologies, ecologies, astrologies, and geographies. To Love the Coming End insists on an eternal unearthing of memory, a return to remembering, however fleeting." --Sarah de Leeuw, award-winning author of Geographies of a Lover and Skeena
