Her Red Hair Rises with the Wings of Insects

Wolsak & Wynn, October 2013

From Wolsak & Wynn:

In her fifth collection of poetry, Catherine Graham breaks into rich, new territory. Long recognized for the easy grace and strange beauty of her poems about grief and remembrance, in Her Red Hair Rises with the Wings of Insects, she turns her thoughts toward poems of tribute and exaltation. Paying homage to the work of two inspiring poets – P. K. Page, whose long life and celebrated career have made her a legend in her native Canada, and Dorothy Molloy, an Irish poet whose life was tragically cut short just as readers were discovering the true scope of her talents – Graham has crafted an ocean-spanning book of deep feeling, good humour and hard-won solace.
