Review of A Map of Rain Days by Ivy Reiss of The Artis Magazine

Jennifer Hosein’s poetry is relevant, emotional, evocative, and beautiful. Jennifer’s poetry shows us what it’s like to be a person of colour in Canada without allowing identity to overshadow poetic craft. Her work combines the power of short story with the music of poetry, invoking the ubiquitous human experiences of losing people we love and finding our place in the world.

I’ve decided to break my long social media silence to share this with you because poetic masterpieces are rare. A poet is lucky to have even one in a career. The first poem, “I Love You”, in @jennifer.hosein_poet.painter first collection of poems, “A Map Of Rain Days,” is quite a masterpiece. Each time I’ve been exposed to it, I’ve experienced it with awe, joy, and envy. Envy because I wish I had written it. Buy this book!
