Where to buy it


Mood Swing, with Pear is a refreshing take on life, love and everything in between. Ranging from a tribute to iconic paintings by the late Canadian painter, Alex Colville, to poems constructed from how-to books and encyclopedias to a eulogy for an upstairs neighbour who is both an inspiration and an annoyance. Sue MacLeod illuminates, instructs and reminds us that sometimes the greatest insight is often found in the smallest corner of getting through the day. Playful but never glib, MacLeod succeeds in getting us to look closer at the everyday items in our lives we often take for granted.

About the author

Sue MacLeod has filled her career with the written word, working as a writer, an editor, and a library assistant. Born to a military family, Sue moved many times throughout her childhood but always felt rooted in Nova Scotia, where her family returned each summer. That rootedness is apparent in her two books of poetry and in her novel Namesake, which received a starred review from Quill & Quire and was a Best Books for Kids & Teens selection. Sue now lives in Toronto, Ontario.
