Some bones and a story is Alice Major's sixth book of poetry, in which she looks at the lives of some of her favourite female saints. The poet's point of view is decidedly contemporary while at the same time she manages to give these poems a medieval flavour through her use of language and imagery.
Alice Major lives in Edmonton. Her poems have appeared widely in literary magazines and in four previous collections. She is past chair of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Writers Guild of Alberta, and has served as president of the League of Canadian Poets.
