Description

Winner of the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts & Letters Award and the Cuffer Prize for Fiction

Miscreations, the second collection by Grant Loveys, mulls over the metaphorical concept of miscreation -- how people, objects, and relationships are imperfectly designed by their various creators -- through the use of direct, visceral language, and frank, sometimes shocking, imagery.

Unconcerned with aesthetic imperfections, Miscreations focuses instead on how people and situations can be created from unstable, often opposing, elements and examines how these people and situations manage to survive. This is poetry that looks beyond a misprinted shirt and deep into the person wearing it ... beyond empty memes and Instagram platitudes and into the complicated, flawed and searching human readers who navigate a world that is often at odds with itself.
