Alice Major's powerful new collection considers humanity's reckoning in a time of tremendous upheaval.

What portents must you divine when a knife falls from the sky into your snow covered yard? With Knife on Snow, Alice Major employs history, myth, and science to understand a world ablaze.

From the bitumen hills of Fort McMurray to the barren reaches of Iceland, Knife on Snow depicts an earth bathed in dragon’s breath, where, like the Norse gods bound to their fate, we stand transfixed by the consequences of our actions, both driver / and passenger— part-cause / part-witness of earth’s unwinding.

As you would expect in Alice Major’s expert hands this unwinding yields to an evolution, a discovery, an acceptance of struggles’ end and the possibility of a tomorrow unknown. All from Knife on Snow.

Reviews

The beauty of the poems [in Knife on Snow] is not the siren beauty of forgetting the world, but a beauty that rouses the resolve to save it.
