Beautiful Children with Pet Foxes, the new collection of poetry from Giller Prize–longlisted writer Jennifer LoveGrove, attempts to make sense of a difficult and unsettling world, where one need not look much further than their own communities to witness acts of trauma and absurdity. Here, we're haunted by the ghosts of alienation, trauma, delusion, and fear that the past decade has instilled in us, and bear witness to moments of extreme crisis-in emotional breakdowns, the failures of the mental health system, the lack of support for the most vulnerable members.
With inventive and startling imagery and logic, we're led on an odyssey through the terrain of startling dreamscapes, where a whole host of personas, both tame and wild-from humans, to foxes, moose, deer and crows, slugs, fish, beetles, mosquitos, earthworms, and more-give voice to the things we can't express in our daily lives.

Beautiful Children repositions many of Common Place's concerns, plucking them off the side of the road and situating them in a sort of lushly weird wonderland. Trauma and violence are explored through a series of "Incident Report" poems, placing bodies in close quarters with cold, invasive institutions and bureaucracies. The question of who counts as a citizen with agency and who is simply a "tenderized denizen,/ward detritus" is central to many poems exploring the insidious effects of mental illness. The collection culminates in the astounding title poem Beautiful Children with Pet Foxes, pitch-perfect in its pacing, its whimsy, its desperation and its bite. It's so singularly effective that it almost bulldozes over the rest of the collection – but writing a poem so good that even you have trouble outdoing yourself doesn't seem like such a bad a fate to me.
