Thing Is
By (author): Suzannah Showler
9780771005558 Paperback, Trade English General Trade POETRY / Canadian Mar 28, 2017
$19.95 CAD
Active 5.7 x 8.5 x 0.3 in 96 pages McClelland & Stewart
A startling and hip new collection of poetry from a dual American/Canadian citizen who’s already making waves on the literary scene.

Suzannah Showler’s bracing, intense second collection is equal parts cultural critique and phenomenological investigation. Building on the enlightened skepticism of her much-praised debut, Thing Is puts the hashtag age through some much-needed paces. Witty, cutting, heartbroken and cautiously hopeful, these poems are really about “aboutness,” and what it means to be alive right now. They also nimbly advance the longstanding poetic argument for the value of considered attention: “What follows from / what you know is / not the same thing / as knowledge. Even / when you get it right.”

Series Overview: The McClelland & Stewart poetry program, supported by its active Board, is committed to publishing Canadian poets whose work engages and excites, and who stand out because of the distinctiveness of their voices, their rigorous dedication to craft, and the scope of their imaginations.

SUZANNAH SHOWLER’s first book, Failure to Thrive (2014), was a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Award and named one of the best books of the year by the National Post. Her poetry and non-fiction have appeared in places such as Slate, The Walrus, Maisonneuve, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and Hazlitt. She is a 2017-2018 Presidential Fellow at the Ohio State University.

Praise for Suzannah Showler's poetry:
• "Showler's work is evidence of a lively and flourishing imagination." -- Toronto Star
• "[Showler's] navigation between the funny and the broken is both startling and captivating, and makes us wonder whether the two are more similar than we might think." -- CV2
• "Her poems are distinguished by their cultural awareness . . . without losing sight of the human ethos that defines modern living." -- Publishers Weekly
• "Spiked with snarky wit and punctuated by slivers of tenuous hope. The writing is tight, poignant and accessible." -- Maisonneuve
• "A bold, self-assured voice, but Showler proves she has more than earned it. This is the real thing." -- Lemonhound
