Product description


"Julie Paul’s The Rules of the Kingdom is a testament to the grit and grace of life lived with intention. It is rare to encounter poems that meet the complexities of being and belonging with such fresh, unapologetic joy." Deanna Young, author of House Dreams

"Julie Paul’s first book of poetry is a powerful narrative of place, family, religion and sex, her histories thereof. These poems are strong, delicate, risky as fire. So much fire in this beautiful collection, so many bright poems, so many clear flames."

“With mastery and invention, [Paul] takes the storytelling poem to new heights.” The Malahat Review

"Rich with the evocative details of place and family life. The poems are skilfully crafted and attentively honed, making The Rules of the Kingdom a pleasure to read." Canadian Literature
