Head Upstate with Rachel Guido DeVries

The Brother Inside Me by Rachel Guido DeVries

The Brother Inside Me by Rachel Guido DeVries

Guernica Editions invites you to celebrate the holidays this year by giving the gift of literature. With over 900 authors, Guernica is a diverse publisher of some of Canada’s finest poetry, fiction and literary criticism. We invite you to browse our selection of titles at your local bookseller, or online through Amazon or Chapters Indigo. We’re confident that you’ll agree there’s a Guernica book for every reader on your list!

Guernica’s literary gift idea of the day is Rachel Guido DeVries’ The Brother Inside Me, a collection of autobiographical poems about the passing of the poet’s beloved brother, the dementia that claimed her father, and the inevitable bodily changes that come with age. Experimenting with traditional forms such as elegies and dirges, the poems keep coming back to the paradoxes of love and loss. Finally, though, solace comes in shimmering poems that connect with the poet’s two earlier collections and celebrate the beauty of rural upstate New York.
