Sans Nom Poetry Group Reading featuring Patricia Kuzak

Val for Lucy cover photo

Wednesday, August 5, 7:00

Patricia Kuzak’s visceral poems are rooted in the body, the ripe physicality of sweat and urine and blood. Here are poems of desire, of longing for that elusive something, which is an honest interaction in a world that demands conformity. Patricia Kuzak is a seeker of truth; these vivid poems are that searching.
-Lynda Monahan, author of A Slow Dance in the Flames, What My Body Knows, (Coteau Books) and Verge (Guernica Editions)

Patricia Kuzak’s earthy, intelligent writing confronts life on earth with frankness and grace, exploring the nature of foxes and bears, parents and children, sorrow, sex, and death. The poems reveal the poet’s love of language and talent for wry observation, and present us again and again with sudden twists that give us something we never could have expected, truly original perspectives on human experience.
-Catherine Hunter, author of Latent Heat (Signature Editions)

Valentines for Lucy is a poignant and penetrating collection of poetry, which weaves us through a compelling journey of yearning, disappointment, loss and acceptance. The poems are packed with visceral and primal images that remind us of our basic instincts for survival. The sensual and raw nature of the collection keeps us going back for more. In each poem we find twists that show us glimpses of how to navigate through this journey of need for connection and belonging.
-Veryl Coghill, author of Make Me (Thistledown Press)
