Mouthful of Bees comes from Quinn's own experience as someone who both provides and uses mental health and addiction services. The collection moves between personal, communal and mythical experiences of madness to obliterate the idea that recovery is a tidy or linear event. These pieces ask us to be unflinchingly honest with how we care for each other and our environment. They ask us to be patient with each other and our inevitable mistakes while prodding at society's uncomfortable relationship with forgiveness. Finally, they challenge us to welcome resilience in all of its' messy and awkward iterations.
