"Sandra Djwa's brilliant, compellingly detailed biography of P.K. Page is a fitting tribute to one of our greatest poets. Djwa captures Page as a complex, original, and dazzling artist of international stature, and in the process, offers an illuminating portrait of Canadian cultural life in the latter half of the twentieth century." Rosemary Sullivan, author of Villa Air-Bel: World War II, Escape, and a House in Marseille
"Sandra Djwa has written a foundational biography of P.K. Page as artist and poet on which all further work on Page must draw. She conveys the extraordinary range of Page's generous engagement with the world, and finds her way to the core of P.K.'s passion for art and friendship - her absolute faith in love." Marilyn Bowering, author of Soul Mouth
Djwa’s careful prose and chronological rigour are matched by her analysis (
) Page unquestionably deserves a full critical biography such as this.” George Fetherling
