ON TENTERHOOKS is the first poetry collection from Liisa Ladouceur. Her work is a dance with death: girls drown in Texas floods, Mayan boys are massacred, body parts wash up on shore, and memories are ravaged by the cruel sands of time. Wandering treacherous territories, from America's Southern highways to the back alleys of Cairo, the poems are haunted by that which is found missing. Liisa weaves magic words plucked from prayers and pop music lyrics into restless free verse, sonnets and glosas that confront universal monstrosities and leave behind a few of their own -- a tentative balance of sanctuary and solicitude.
