Description

Using nature as both model and metaphor, Toronto resident Olive Senior delves into birds, flying, and Caribbean life in her third book of poems. Following her much-loved collections, Gardening in the Tropics and Talking of Trees, this long-awaited book of poems is sure to delight readers around the world. Translated into several languages, represented in numerous anthologies, and broadcast in Canada, Britain, and the Caribbean, Senior's work enjoys international acclaim. Her work is taught at universities around the world, and her short story collection, Summer Lightning, has been a literature textbook in Caribbean schools. She has taught creative writing workshops at universities in Canada, the US, the UK, and the Caribbean, and is on the faculty of the Humber School for Writers. With her warm and chatty writing style, Wright invites her readers into the depths of her daily life, giving a captiviating insider's glance into her personal and professional life. Her observations about the nature of the music industry fascinate, as we learn that Wright is painfully aware of this industry's competitive nature. Wright fully understands that in the music business "pretty good is not good enough."
