In her first book of poetry for adults, Sheree Fitch explores her world, probing its dark corners fearlessly and revelling in its sunny spots. Strong feminism underlies her grappling with the contradictions inherent in what she values most: love, children, work, and home. However dark her vision, her words continue to "feel the taste . . . smell the hear," striking sparks as effectively for adults as they have for children.

About the author

Sheree Fitch's first two books, Toes in My Nose (1987) and Sleeping Dragons All Around (1989), launched her career as a poet, rhymster, and a “kind of Canadian female Dr. Seuss.” Fitch has won almost every major award for Canadian childrenÕs literature since then, including the 2000 Vicky Metcalf Award for a Body of Work Inspirational to Canadian Children. She has over twenty-five books to her credit, including her bestselling and critically praised adult novel, Kiss the Joy as it Flies (2008). Fitch's home base is the East Coast of Canada.
