We Might As Well Be Underwater is a collection of poetry split into two parts: Travelling and Not Travelling.
Cooper-Novack lyrically discusses family, love, death, aging, and illness through travels. The collection travels through Cape Town, Sydney, Venice, Moscow, Chicago, Antarctica, London, Tokyo, Oregon, Florida, and many more places while also uniting the world through experiences. She lyrically composes stanzas that discuss the journey of life through aging and travels while also discovering home.
Readers will enjoy the sense of space and how specific memories or ideas are sprung from a specific environment. Throughout her travels Cooper-Novack explores many spaces, cleverly exposing emotion in places revisited and sharing memories in new environments. They will both feel foreign and familiar in both specific and general spaces.
Poet, playwright, and writer Gemma Cooper-Novack has had her poetry published in more than twenty journals. She also won the OUTSpoken Poetry Prize at Sundance Publishing in 2014. We Might As Well Be Underwater is her first book of poetry.
