About the Author

Gillian Sze is the author of multiple poetry collections, including Peeling Rambutan, Redrafting Winter, and Panicle, which were finalists for the Quebec Writers' Federation's A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry. She resides in Montreal, where she teaches creative writing and literature.


"Quiet Night Think is a stunning work. Gillian Sze has 'the acrobatic ear' and a generous mind. To be a mother, a daughter, a writer, a self -- through reflection and poetry, essay and remembrance, these fragile threads carry one another in profound, transporting ways. I know I will return to this extraordinary book again and again." -- Madeleine Thien, author of Do Not Say We Have Nothing
"Sze draws on emotion-imbued imagery from nature, daily observations and intellectual investigations, punctuated by intimate, often heartrending glimmers that captivate all the way to the book's end." -- Montreal Review of Books
"There is a lot of learning to be had from Quiet Night Think. Sze offers valuable observations and methods of practicing writing in her essays, and then presents the results of those in her poems. The way the essays and poems speak to each other in this collection is stunning." -- The Fiddlehead
"A highly accomplished, beautifully modulated, hybrid collection of meditations, essays and poems." -- Quebec Writers' Federation
"Anyone with an interest in translation, in the poet Li Bai, and Tang poetry more generally, will need a quiet night think with "bed front bright moon light" (3) to read and reread this work." -- Canadian Literature
