Nice Day for Murder

A collection of poems for one of Hollywood’s great actors, Jimmy Cagney, best known for his ­gangster films of the 1930s. Nice Day for Murder takes a Tommy gun to ­contemporary notions of poetry and feminism. Lines begin to blur between fiction and reality as the narrative confuses Cagney’s street-tough movie persona with his gentle off-screen demeanour.

in Cars

The 2007 Kimmy Beach model, in Cars, is a crowd-pleasing look at the lives of rural teenagers in western Canada, and includes a free-wheeling tour of love, cars, and roller rinks.

Fake Paul


As the unnamed narrator of Fake Paul scours Liverpool and New York for any trace of Beatles' history, Beach uncovers the poetic in dingy, sweating underground bars, out-of-body concert experiences and stolen wax museum heads. Beach explores those moments where obsession crosses over into possession, and love becomes an exercise in blind self-destruction.

Alarum Within

A theatre audience sees only the drama and meaning of the performance on stage. The narrator of Kimmy Beach's second poetry collection, Alarum Within, has a different tale to tell - not only of backstage encounters with overwrought set designers and pushy stage mothers at a small college theatre, but of illness, addiction, and identity.
