August 02nd, 2022

In seeking to answer Pontius Pilate’s trolling question, “What is truth?” Jennifer Zilm turns to a variety of sources and discourses in her third poetry collection, First-Time Listener (Guernica Editions $20) due out in October. Her replies are inspired by (but never limited to) God, Gilgamesh, CNN, the Cloud, the Bible (she has a collection of bibles), hypochondriac hay fever sufferers, Bob Dylan, YouTube conspiracy tutorials, Proust, marginally-housed meth heads, Benjamin Moore paint swatches, Tarot cards, as well as her own memories and senses. Zilm lives in Greater Surrey Regional District and in Ecuador. She has a BA and MA in Religious Studies from the University of British Columbia. She was also a PhD candidate in Early Judaism and Early Christianity at McMaster University where she studied the Dead Sea scrolls. 9781771837460
