Spring 2017 Release: Seasons in an Unknown Key

Seasons in an Unknown Key by Karen MulhallenPublished by Tightrope Books in April 2017

In her latest collection of poetry, Karen Mulhallen takes us on a physical journey through the course of a year and on a spiritual journey through many lives. The beauty of birds, the amour fou of the inconstant lover, the rapture of the past in the history of Toronto Islands and of the city of Pompeii. This is a poet at the height of her art, crafting language and rhythm, to mirror the ebb and flow of the scene. A compelling and devastating group of poems.
