Prose, poetry, chapbook, 28 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
The Blue House on Cone Hill Road & Other (Dog) Habitations is a hybrid collection of creative nonfiction and poetry that moves through experiences told or retold from the 1960s-1980s. Heather J. Macpherson attempts to show us how dogs can challenge our humanity and inhumanity.
Through representations of canines, real and otherwise, the reader is taken through situations of grief, the complexity of memory, and how we try to reconcile with what we know and do not know.
