The Anatomy of Clay

Taking off from the myth of human creation, this poetic collection explores the individual as a sentient mystery. The first section examines overlooked moments with urban characters—the woman on the bus, a neighbor talking to plants, or the girl smoking after a storm. The second section takes a confessional turn towards the author’s inner life. At times reflective, instructional, playful, or strange, exception is found in the ineffable distinctions between people, selves, objects, and histories.

Gillian Sze is the author of Fish Bones and the cofounder and coeditor of Branch magazine. She lives in Montreal, Quebec.
