Praise for War / Torn:
War / Torn mourns, loves and burns all the derogatory impulses of our continuous present. This book is of and against our time. War / Torn is a breathless elegy in the most defiantly tender poetics you can imagine.
—Jordan Scott, author of Night & Ox, and winner of the Latner Poetry Prize by the Writer’s Trust of Canada
