The Space A Name Makes is an exciting first book by Rosemary Sullivan. The poems are about the world that collects around the mystery of a name, an identity—poems of love, of family history, of the poet’s neighbourhood Bloor Street and of her travels.
“The poems in this collection embrace experience open-heartedly. Their beauty is poignant; home is seen by the exile, freedom by the oppressed, love by one familiar with loss. How grateful we can be for poems that are unafraid of love’s necessary risks and sorrows.”
