Overview

Award-winning poet Gillian Jerome's long-awaited second collection is a meditation on rediscovery and reconnection. ​

How do we restore relationships between land and people? Gillian Jerome’s poems suggest that we might plant a garden, put one foot in front of the other. In Nevertheless, a collection about love, grief, friendship, aging, neighbours and neighbourhoods, Jerome roams into ordinary places inside and outside of the city of Vancouver to find beings and states of being to sing about.
