Author Grace Kwan’s debut poetry collection, The Sacred Heart Motel (Metonymy Press $18.95), due out in October, redefines concepts of time, space, art and the body. Her narrative poetry invites readers to explore the public, private and hidden areas of a motel, taking them through its amenities, rooms, back alleys and the lives of ghosts and queer love stories. Kwan uses music as a thematic backbone, from nighttime quiet to orchestral crescendos. Her work guides readers through the intricate recesses of body and roadside space with ruthlessness and agility. She is a Malaysian-born writer and sociologist based in Vancouver. 9781998898169
