Mallory Amirault's debut collection Brine is an ambitious land-metaphor; merging history and imagination, it's a work of poetry that doubles as a prose novel. Subtly unfolding character-led intimacies, it acts as an interruption to long-standing Maritime coloniality. Amirault describes Brine as an aboiteau at the shoreline of a colonial event. Engaging the elemental and political act of arriving and departing, the story is a mechanism that slowly removes salt from the Maritimes, and points to say ?wound.?

Born in Nova Scotia, Mi?kma?ki, Mallory Amirault is an artist whose Acadian and Mi?kmaq heritage belongs to the Kespukwitk district of Yarmouth, otherwise known as the lobster's ass when referring to the province. Their artistic practice engages in critical poetics, literary performance, and humour. As a person enmeshed in the legacy of colonization and cultural diaspora in the Maritimes, they think, read and write about the idiosyncrasies of belonging and identity, and memory as a palimpsest. They currently live alongside the Halfway River, a tributary that flows into the Minas Basin, an inlet of the Bay of Fundy.
