Weaving elements of humor, bitterness, and earnest personal history, Demon Hickeys is Sappho meets Punky Brewster, or a window into the complications and tribulations of growing up and discovering one’s sexuality. Mia Poirier inserts herself unflinchingly into the LGBT literary community with this, her first poetry collection with The Blasted Tree. Inscribing her heart on the page, Poirier touches nimbly upon relationships, family, illness, coffee shops, and city life, illuminating the challenges of youth along the way. Demon Hickeys was recognized at the Gala de l'Académie de la vie littéraire in March, 2016 as one of the best reads of the year.
