Alla ricerca di Iris


Italian translation of Tracing Iris

Les Flaneurs Edizioni, Bari, 2022

In elegant language which peels back masks to discover a self ‘folded inside these pages,’ Genni Gunn’s Accidents exposes links hidden in childhood and in the body to the essence of family, time, and place. It’s the knowing, Gunn says, that ‘joins us to the ghost limbs of our past’ . Gunn’s poetry illuminates found objects, their connections coalescing into an autobiography of perception itself.”

— Marilyn Bowering, author of What is Long Past occurs in Full Light



“…[Genni Gunn’s] poems traverse the globe and take readers along for a ride through a world where familial ghosts reside. The memories those spirits bring, often unsettling, ring true as bright shards of glass in sunlight. These poems sometimes inhabit wild places where “…buildings [are] slowly stifled by tentacles of vines” yet may still head uptown to the mostly sedate streets of the poshly manicured Shaughnessy district. Although life in these pages is an ongoing theatre, frequently “…a theatre / of regrets,” the dramas that play out also offer hope through these days of fear and isolation.”  

- Heidi Greco, author of Glorious Birds
