Exhale, Exhale explores the many facets of love, including nostalgia, separation, and newly-found happiness. These terse poems describe various passages of a love story unravelling between two continents, from the lonesome nights of a distant relationship to the abstract imperative of finding happiness within oneself. With a voice that is both wry and tender, the author guides the reader through a journey to the depths of the human soul, in search of what comes after love. Poet and scholar Cristina Perissinotto has enjoyed important life passages in Montreal, Ficulle, Ottawa, Champaign-Urbana, Portogruaro and Venice. Her poetry is published both in Italian and in English. Professor Perissinotto teaches in the Italian Studies and Medieval Studies Program at the University of Ottawa. Exhale, Exhale is her first collection of poems.
