Reminiscent of the quilt pattern from which it takes its name, Deanna Young’s Drunkard’s Path pieces varied life experiences into a patchwork of poems, negotiating the twisted, meandering terrain of memory and relationships.
“Deanna Young has written a disarming first collection which not only deftly threads original motifs through a range of disparate poems, but also possesses a welcome sense of the irony and humour present in almost all things.” Kimmy Beach, Sub Terrain
