Tears in My Bread embraces the joy and devastation of life in poems rich with rhythm and brutal honesty. Travel through continents, generations, death, womanhood, love, yearning, trauma, memory and the search for self through words filled with sharp, unforgettable imagery.
‘The poems expressed a range of emotions through understatement and evocative imagery. The reader is taken on a journey through family life, the body, illness, migration to Australia, and visits to Greece. The poems have an elegiac tone, conveying life’s struggles and losses, while at the same time affirming poetry’s transformative power.’ – Tom Petsinis
