Bone Song (Briery Creek 2015)

Of Bone Song, poet Sarah Kennedy says, "Bunny Goodjohn’s poems, as her title suggests, cut right to the bone. Singing of pain and sickness, of everyday cruelty and lost love, she traces the scars of childhood along an adult’s memories..."

I'll mail bubble-wrapped and of course, I'll sign your copy. If you would like me to include a special inscription, just let me know when you order.


Bone Song won the Liam Rector First Prize for Poetry in 2014. Sarah Kennedy nailed the essence of the book in her jacket blurb. Bone Song IS about scars, about how childhood leaves its mark on us forever. Some of those marks become silvery with time, more shadow than scar. Some remain livid. Others, like oysters building pearl around the irritation of sand, form layers of padding against future damage.
