Taylor Leedahl integrates the dynamic traditions of Western Canadian poetry with her evolving pop sensibility, and emerges with a bright and resonant new voice on the literary landscape. Here is a chronology of a girl, then a young woman, coming to age in a contemporary society that allows more psychological, educational, and sexual freedoms than ever before, and her poetic response as she exercises these liberties wherever and whenever she can.

“Taut with energy, these poems compel us to look up and outward — as the ‘blue sun tumbles’ and prairie ‘moon limbo[s]’ under the wide-eyed horizon. Leedahl’s crystalline observations are a 'white rip of truth' in a landscape where flora and fauna, humans and insects are busy ‘making business' of life.” — Mari-Lou Rowley
