Poetry. Native American Studies. nila northSun's LOVE AT GUNPOINT is written with emotional honesty and biting elegance, embracing her tribal identity and confronting the challenges of being a contemporary American woman. Her poems are a confession of the extremes of her life: the highs of a first kiss, the lows of coming home to an empty house. "nila northSun's new poems are funny and brutal. In short, direct lines, she tells the story of a life filled with pain, shame, agony, and glorious little moments of joy. She is one of my favorite poets"-Sherman Alexie. Her book A SNAKE IN THE MOUTH is also available from SPD.
