Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
A Little Death Around the Heart was originally published in 2015. This is a limited edition reprint of 150 copies.
Marie Darsigny’s debut is scrappy and sentimental, sharp around the edges yet as frightfully catchy as the saccharine song lyrics snaking their way through her poetry. A Little Death Around the Heart mythologizes the most embarrassing, raw-nerve years of ones life. Brimming with cultural signifiers as dead as Myspace, as 90s as Angel perfume, and as New Wave as a Godard film, A Little Death Around the Heart collects the bric-a-brac of contemporaneity, managing to amass something cohesive, crooked, obsessive, and a lot like love.
Marie Darsigny is an artist and poet from Montreal. She studied creative writing at Concordia University (BA) and at Université du Québec à Montréal (MA).
