Tanya Kerns first book of poems The Erotics of Memory was a deep intimate statement, radiant with dark and rich sensuality. With her second book Ave she moves from the politics of the flesh to matters of the spirit. Erotic, surreal, thoughtful and intensely personal, the poems of Ave explode with a gentle ferocity.
Tanya Kern grew up in a hard rock town in northern Ontario. She lives in Metchosin, B.C., with her two daughters and several small animals. She has published a chapbook, Glory Days, with Reference West, and has been published in several magazines, including Event, The Fiddlehead Review, Midwest Poetry Review and Antigonish Review.
