Marilyn Gear Pilling

Marilyn Gear Pilling lives in Hamilton and grew up in Waterloo, Ontario, but her roots are in Huron County. Pilling's short fiction and poetry have won and been shortlisted for national awards and her poetry has been broadcast on CBC radio. Her latest poetry books are Cleavage: A Life in Breasts and The Life of the Four Stomachs from Black Moss Press.

Cleavage is the journal of one woman’s life as told through her breasts. The tone is humourous and irreverent, but a more serious theme underlies the book – one which sees the breast as an agent of connection, at all ages, rather than as an object of shame or dehumanization.
