MONSTER is an exploration in poetry and lyric prose of the effects genetic variation has had upon her family, especially her son Robert. Humanity's genetic fabric is monstrous--purposefully shape-shifting and awesome in its effects as it fulfills its evolutionary purpose, to make each of us different, diverse, unique.
MONSTER was issued in 2016 by Phoenicia, an independent press based in Montreal.
Phoenicia "is interested in words and images that illuminate culture, spirit, and the human experience. We publish poetry, non-fiction, fiction, music, photography and art. A particular interest is on writing and images about travel between cultures — whether literally or more metaphorically and philosophically — with the goal of enlarging our understanding of one another through universal and particular experiences."
