This month we will be discussing 'Eating My Grandmother: A Grief Cycle' by Krissy Kneen.

*This bookclub discussion will be repeated the next day during The Daylight Bookclub (9.30am-10.30am Thursday October 8)*

Following the death of her grandmother, Australian novelist and bookseller Krissy Kneen turned to the art of poetry for the first time. Grief-stricken by her loss, she found herself unable to work on her latest novel, and became obsessed with writing poetry about her grandmother.

The resulting poems won 2014’s Thomas Shapcott Prize for Poetry and are now published for the first time in a collection that offers a kaleidoscope of fitful dreams, tender memories and heart-struck musings that shine new light on our own sense of mortality.
