Reviews

"Roo Borson invites us to embark on a meditative, imaginative and spiritual journey. This book has a profound inner life. It is resonant and whole, moving with quiet, apparently easy steps into the depth of human experience."
-Jury citation, Governor General's Award

In poetry, few things matter so much as a hungry eye, a fresh way of responding to the world... Roo Borson is a true original."
-Maclean's

"She's become one of the best-known Canadian poets of her generation. She's a clear writer, clear-minded, with a dark and musical imagination."
-Washington Post

"She absorbs one totally, dissolving the conventional distinctions between body, mind, and heart."
-Globe and Mail

"To read her poetry is to make an exhilarating discovery."
-Toronto Star
