Breathing November



Breathing November

Some unfortunate news ignites the fire that begins this heroic journey told beautifully in verse. It is an ode to loss, but more so a celebration of life.


Breathing November is Tanis MacDonald’s ode to the friends she loses to the HIV virus. After a close friend tests positive with the disease, MacDonald joins him on the journey of the last seven years of his life, documenting the memories in this beautiful chapbook that is endearing and tender.

Divided into three sections, she explores the discovery, the understanding, and finally the acceptance of such an immense loss. Along her travels to celebrate the life of her dear friend, she is touched by so many more, her own life forever altered.
