Winner of the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award (League of Canadian Poets).
Nominated for the Governor-General’s Award for Poetry and the Dillons Commonwealth Poetry Prize.

questions i asked my mother is a seminal work of both Canadian and Mennonite literature. Originally published in 1987, the collection embodies a bold vision of the feminine that confronts centuries of patriarchal culture. Powerful and lyrical, Brandt’s poems bridge the impossible contradictions between traditionalism and the postmodern in extraordinary gestures of creative defiance and tenderness.

In this new edition, poet and scholar Tanis MacDonald reflects in a critical essay on the far-reaching impact and continuing relevance of Di Brandt’s groundbreaking collection.
