Beneath the Surface
Something dark dwells in the deep crevices of every soul. Erna Grcic’s poetry collection Beneath the Surface revolves around the secrets, weaknesses, and monsters that creep beneath the surface of the everyday existence. She deals with those nightmarish eyes that glint in the darkness behind each smile, each long gaze into the distance, each daydream. It’s an emotional and winding path into the poet’s own past that deals with the journey from childhood to womanhood, war, love, ageing, and passage of time.
