Put Flowers Around Us and Pretend We're Dead is a beautiful collection of Catherine Graham's award-winning poetry. Spanning twenty years of writing these poems trace Graham's arc from ARC Poetry Magazine's initial observation that "Graham is a young poet whose work should be closely attended to" to the Toronto Star writing "Catherine Graham's seventh book of poetry is an intricate reverie." Poems within this collection circle around profound themes, including family, healing, loss and love, but they are written with a delight in the natural world, a delicate line and ethereal imagery. Here, birds are gathered in bouquets, a ghost is a fold in the mind and the snow holds light. Put Flowers Around Us and Pretend We're Dead is a must-have volume from a much-loved poet.
