In Keep This To Yourself, grief is a violent machine, with each new poem Kerrin McCadden unscrews every bolt of this grief until it falls apart.
McCadden cuts through the many layers of loss as she writes about how it moves through her family like a sickness. What good is silence in the face of trauma? McCadden plunges into the truth, and shows us the world on the other side.
Winner of the 2018 Button Poetry Prize.
