Editorial Reviews

Lorna Crozier's poetic gift gives her prose a wonderful edge and clarity. —Winnipeg Free Press


Crozier's prose illuminates our world. She is a writer of the first rank. —David Adams Richards


How rare such honesty is, and how hard-won, and radical, and beautiful. —Ursula LeGuin


The Governor General's Award-winning poet's vivid narrative about her upbringing in Swift Current, Sask. Her father, Emerson, was an alcoholic, and we come to know the shame she experienced living with poverty and addiction. Her mother, Peggy, was a tough proud woman who never wasted a potato and who loved her daughter fiercely, if quietly. This is a fast read, due in great part to Crozier's superb ability to tell a story simply and from the gut. —National Post


With her poet's eye, Crozier lays out the taste and smell and feel of her childhood . . . Her memoir is a tender reflection of her youth, and we are left with prairie visions dancing in our heads. —Chronicle Herald


Crozier's character sketches are solid but it's her poet's eye that rewards an attentive reader. —Toronto Star
