Readers have called this work "a profound documentary", "a personal story" and "with possibility and promise of radical illumination."
The recent years have been violent to most of us, with one crisis after another. We all are dealing with grief. A collective and personal anguish for things and people dear to us, we've lost.
The Sheltering is a recounting of pandemic and political anxieties through verse. The book exists as a witness to the darkest times of our modern society. A collection of poems that centres on themes of loss, grief, resilience and healing. Sometimes a dare, and other times a plea, the author invites the reader to sit with their feelings in a world that wants us to heal fast and move on. Because we cannot heal what we do not acknowledge.
