Blue Sonoma

Jane Munro won the Griffin Poetry Prize
in 2015

As if “a voice spoke her name and woke her,” Jane Munro’s new poems are openhearted, yet quick and taut, with a playful – even biting – wit. How can Blue Sonoma be so elegant, so apparently simple, when each poem is a tinderbox?

— Anne Simpson on Blue Sonoma
