Andrea McKenzie A Mother’s String previous next   Ekstasis Editions

A Mother’s String is about the lessons we learn in love and patience. It is about the family ties that bind even in the absence of those we are bound to. The poems are haunted by the memory of homes lived in or wished for. In them we remember our younger selves who have still to learn how far we can climb, how far we can fall.

Andrea McKenzie has studied poetry with Patrick Lane and Lorna Crozier. She graduated from the University of Victoria. A Mother’s String is her first book. She lives in Victoria, B.C.
