Editorial Reviews

Review

"What a joy to have a volume of selected poems by this marvelous Canadian poet, storyteller, truth-teller, visionary."
— Ursula K Le Guin, New York Times Book Review

“One of the most original poets alive. . . .”
Books in Canada

“Crozier’s fans have come to expect graceful clarity, sly humour, a strong affinity for the animal world and a subversive feminist tilt to the mirror she holds up to human affairs.”
Toronto Star

“Lorna Crozier’s The Blue Hour of the Day reads like one long autobiographical poem of astonishing coherence and beauty, and so powerful that, after I’d closed the book, I found that I’d unwittingly learnt several of the lines by heart.”
- Alberto Manguel, Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Tyndall on June 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
I have never considered myself a 'poetry' person.. i heard the author on NPR (replayed in Australia) and she expressed herself in the most honest terms, someone who knew herself, what an amazing way to be in your life.

Her writings are about life, expressed with such openess and passion and, this is not poetry, its life written down... buy it, you will see yourself.
