Product Description


pinky swear is Albrecht’s first book and it is by turns cheeky, incisive and self-deprecating in tone. The poet mulls over existential crises in a fragmented anxiety, manifested by the consumption of potato chips, cigarettes, chocolate and booze to present a disarming immediacy…she considers the push and pull of what we consume and where we need to be, of what we dream of and what we give our attention to.” LINDA ADAIR, Rochford Street Review

“Claire Albrecht ranges from bald eagles to Putin and takes her images from nature, from the current news, or from her own experience, even-handedly. She gives us a sense of space and distance at her fingertips, balanced by humour and a wicked turn of phrase.” MARY CRESWELL, Plumwood Mountain Journal
