Special Edition of 1996 by Sara Peters
Sara Peters' visionary debut collection is a book about obsessions — about desire, violence, sex, beauty, and cruelty, about how they lace through our days, leaving us changed. In these startling poems of mystery and terror, we meet remarkable characters enduring unspeakable things, confronting the raw reality of existence through fearless candor. With profound clarity, elegance, and humour, Sara Peters reminds us of the harrowing and beautiful complexity of life itself. 1996 marks the undeniable arrival of an essential and brave new voice.
A limited-edition hardcover printing of fifty of this book was printed and bound at the Coach House on bpNichol Lane in Toronto.
