Odes & Laments Odes & Laments (poetry)

  • “There is a brilliant simplicity to Odes & Laments (Caitlin Press), a collection that praises the small, mundane and ordinary, while mourning personal and global losses brought by human hands. With this collection, Lam offers delight and despair side by side, inviting the reader to revel in the nexus between love and social responsibility….Odes & Laments acknowledges the tragedy of being, guides the reader through these emotions with grace, and reminds us that there is endless beauty in even the smallest object or moment.” Emily Chou, SAD magazine July 2020

  • “Love Me True, an anthology of essays and poems by Canadian writers on love and marriage, provides ample evidence of what extraordinary writers Canada has produced. Here are forty-seven voices writing sensitively about human relationships, free of cant, cliché, or false sentimentality—often with humour and irony….  [C]ourage, candour, and strong writing with eloquent resonance—makes this an anthology to treasure.”
    – Graham Nicol Forst, Canadian Literature (Fall 2018)
