Incandescence on Downtown Eastside

March 26th, 2016

SFU’s Wayde Compton has supplied one of the year’s most original blurbs for a poetry book: “Jennifer Zilm’s Waiting Room (Book Thug $18) is incantatory and incandescent. Like Brian Wilson’s assertion of the song as a pocket symphony, Zilm’s poetic lyrics are pocket epics.” It’s a potpourri of styles and content, mixing her perspectives as an academic and a self-described frontline worker on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Born in Terrace, she’s a graduate of SFU Writer’s Studio as well as the Humber College School for Writers. 9781771662147
