new from above/ground press: The Appetites of Tiny Hands: Twentieth Anniversary Edition, by Natalee Caple

The Appetites of Tiny Hands: Twentieth Anniversary Edition
Natalee Caple
with a new afterword by the author

Be lenient with me

(tiny white signals
too small to be photographed.)

I make no music
(exposed by the wind.)

I do not claim to suffer

To spur the sorry
(blue one I never meant to love)

the birds I have kept hidden in my attic
are quiet now.

The Appetites of Tiny Hands was originally produced through above/ground press in an edition of 150 copies, November 26 1997, “for a reading at the Imperial Library Pub, Toronto as part of an above/ground press night – Natalee Caple, Stephen Cain, Jim Larwill & rob mclennan.”

Natalee Caple is the author of seven books of poetry and fiction and the co-editor of an anthology of contemporary Canadian writers. The New York Times called her fiction “moving … unsettling.” The Washington Post described her writing as “breathlessly good.” Caple’s latest novel, In Calamity’s Wake, was published by HarperCollins in Canada and by Bloomsbury in the US. She is a professor of English, teaching Canadian literature and Creative Writing at Brock University.
