Deep Salt Water is a stirring memoir about loss and abortion, expressed through the layering of imagery from the ocean. In detail at once sensual and sophisticated, Apostolides unfurls the emotional experience of a love affair and unwanted pregnancy, the abortion itself, and her reconnection with the man seventeen years later—a rekindling of love which stimulates this gentle attempt to come to terms with the abortion and its consequences. Moving from a place of intense intimacy to an outward focus that engages with the broader world, Deep Salt Water discusses abortion in all its complexity, rejecting polarizing rhetoric in favour of the unfathomable truths that women hold in their bodies.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

In the coming year, we'll need more writers like Apostolides, who are willing to talk about morality without the security of moralism. Candian Notes and Queries
A intoxicating, accretive reading experience, shot through with recognizable truth and a clever use of the splice of precision and interruption to deliver them. Toronto Star
Dancing the line between poetry and prose, Deep Salt Water is an imaginative expression of all the human body shares with the earth it inhabits. With Deep Salt Water, Apostolides has written a book that doubles as healing salve for the things inside us begging for compassion. Colorado Review
There’s nothing like finding a book that is so open and honest, you feel as if you’ve found a window into the author's psyche. That's how it feels to read Marianne Apostolide’s latest, Deep Salt Water. Vagabond City
Deep Salt Water is intimate and sensual, tidal and saline — how can a book be tidal and saline? These words make sense within the environment of the book. Apostolides’s language is not of pristine nature but of the anthropocene, our current geologic age of bleached coral and oceans choking on plastics. In light of man-made climate catastrophe, learning this language takes on added urgency. The Globe and Mail
