By: Schellenberg, Angeline
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Brick Books, 2016Description: 123 pages ; 23 cmISBN: 9781771314428 (paperback); 9781771314442 (pdf); 9781771314428Subject(s): Fiction and poetry | Childhood | Books by parents | Resources for parentsSummary: "Through public judgments, detouring dreams and unspoken prayers, Tell Them It Was Mozart, Angeline Schellenberg's debut collection, traces both a slow bonding and the emergence of a defiant humour. This is a book that keens and cherishes, a work full of the earthiness and transcendence of mother-love. One of the pleasures of this collection is its playful range of forms: there are erasure poems, prose poems, lists, found poems, laments, odes, monologues and dialogues in the voices of the children, even an oulipo that deconstructs the DSM definition of autism. From a newborn "glossed and quivering" to a child conquering the fear of strange toilets, Tell Them It Was Mozart is bracing in its honesty, healing in its jubilance."
