In strikingly assured poems of formal and informal grace, Laura Cok’s explores the compelling nature of faith and its loss and the shifting dynamics of family life. Steering clear of sentimentality, and with a wry look at the vagaries of coming of age, Cok has created a mirror in this marvellous debut, in which we can all recognize a little of ourselves.

Originally from Northern California, Laura spent time in Grand Rapids, Michigan and Waterloo, Ontario before settling in Toronto, where she now lives. She holds an MA in English Literature from the University of Toronto, where she won the E.J. Pratt Poetry Medal and the University of Toronto Magazine alumni poetry contest. She has been previously published widely across Canada and works in corporate communications. This is her first book.
