Here's a snippet from Toronto-based poet and novelist Mark Sampson's recent review of Stowaways for his blog, Free Range Reading:
"The poems in this collection grapple with both the wild and the mundane,
the animalistic nature of nature and relentless responsibilities of
parenthood. Many of these pieces, especially in the first two parts, are
in fact about collisions between the feral world and the domestic one.
In poems like “Wingless Females”, “Little Pig,” and the collection’s
title poem, Gordon shows us how the natural world can insinuate itself into small, household moments."
Mark is in the process of launching his latest novel, Sad Peninsula, and will publish a collection of poetry with Palimpsest in the coming year or two.
