Digging up the past, whether literal or figural, seems to be the theme of this collection, which, as the title suggests, focuses on childhood experience. In “The Dig” the speakers father literally digs up the past, finking skeletons while making a new outhouse hole, while another series of poems offers heartbreaking scenes from an episode of child abuse. – Winnipeg Free Press – Jonathan Ball
