In her finest collection of poetry to date, Ruth Roach Pierson marshals her considerable expository powers to explore personhood, paranormal phenomenon, and mortality. A Skeletal Wand reaches out with poems that are both honest and strange, touching on a diverse range of subjects that overlap and disrupt easy interpretation. When Pierson writes "For decades her identity / was derivative / like scent / from a perfume bottle," it is with the belief that character is not set in stone, and that change is inherent to the human condition. Approaching the past and present from many different angles, A Skeletal Wand is a refreshing look at the constants that inform modern life.

Ruth Roach Pierson has published five previous poetry collections including Aide-Mémoire (BuschekBooks, 2007), which was a finalist for the 2008 Governor General's Award in Poetry. She also edited an anthology of film poems entitled I Found It at the Movies (Guernica Editions, 2014). She lives in Toronto.
