LISA ROBERTSON has a new book of poetry, Boat, out with Coach House Books in spring 2022. Her critical book Anemones: A Simone Weil Project, was just published in Amsterdam by the arts foundation called If I Can't Dance I don't Want to be Part of Your Revolution. It includes her annotated translation of Weil's 1942 essay, "What The Occitan Inspiration Consists Of". Her first novel, The Baudelaire Fractal (Coach House Books, 2020) was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award for Fiction in 2020. She is currently researching the geological and social history of the Bievre, a buried industrial river in Paris. She left Vancouver for France 18 years ago now. Both feel like home.
