Body of Night: Selected Poems
A bilingual French-English selection of poems by Governor General award-winning Quebecois poet and songwriter.
In unflinching lyrics, Sue Chenette confronts her father's depression and death. Probing memories, fingering mementos -- a square nail, a sketch on a napkin -- she examines them for what they may reveal of the father she was sure she knew, deepened, in death, into the mystery of his own being. The poems are a journey through grief, both a search for the father she loved and a searching look into a father/daughter relationship.

"Old square nail you carried in a pocket,/ fingered among smooth coins --/ rust-pocked, blunt-broken tip --/ rough charm."
