Rotten Perfect Mouth by Eva H.D.

Rotten Perfect Mouth (2015)

(From Mansfield Press)

Rotten Perfect Mouth is a wonderfully fresh first book by a writer with an intuitive ear for colourful, musical language. These poems are loose enough for the reader to flop down inside and stay awhile. They are plangent, personal, confessional, noisy, nostalgic, and maybe a little bit broken. They often contain boats and travel and Toronto (street names and railroad tracks, dives and parks and kitchens) because those are the sorts of things Eva H.D. is drawn to. In Rotten Perfect Mouth, readers will discover a writer with her heart on her sleeve and her hand on her pen, capturing the world around her with vibrant immediacy.

Eva H.D.

Eva H.D. lives in Toronto, where she works at your favourite bar. Her first book of poetry, Rotten Perfect Mouth, was published by Mansfield Press in the spring of 2015.
