In her elegant new collection, Alison Pick, a brilliant poet of sensuous moods, atmospheres, and dreams, explores the mystery concealed within the world we know and recognize. Always evocative, always alluring, her poems are not interested in mere events, but in the fabric inside the emotions that events can provoke. She writes of love, of leaving, of wandering, and of home — not necessarily in that order. With captivating language and shining imagery, her poems travel out through layers of landscape — residential, geographic, emotional, cerebral — creating a guidebook to the hidden, a sparkling tour through the lush and varied backcountry of human experience.

Alison Pick’s writing has appeared in The Walrus, The Globe and Mail, The National Post, and enRoute Magazine. Her first collection of poems, Question & Answer, was a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Award and the E.J. Pratt Newfoundland and Labrador Book Award. In 2002, Pick won the Bronwen Wallace Award for most promising Canadian poet, and her poetry has gone on to win the National Magazine Award and the CBC Literary Award. Her first novel, The Sweet Edge, was a Globe and Mail Top 100 Book of the Year. Alison Pick lives in Toronto.
