Announcing I know something you don’t know by Amy LeBlanc

Gordon Hill Press is pleased to announce I know something you don’t know, a book of poetry by Amy LeBlanc, to be published in Spring 2020.

A note taped to ceramic tile, a wasp’s nest, a veil in a bell jar, and a bird’s nest with an abandoned pair of cufflinks – I know something you don’t know, resides in the intersection of folklore and femininity where the body is both assured and lurid. With fairy-tale lucidity and fluid voice, the poems in this collection weave through the seams between story and fact. Like hemlock, foxglove, and blooming wildflowers, I know something you don’t know is alluring and invariably noxious.
