2016 Governor General's Literary Award Winner

2017 Raymond Souster Award Finalist

This specially designed and bound hardcover First Edition of Steven Heighton's poetry collection is limited to 50 copies.

Governor General’s Literary Award finalist and bestselling author Steven Heighton returns with a collection of laments and celebrations that reflect on our struggle to believe in the future of a world that continues to disappoint us. The poet challenges the boundaries of sleep and even death in these meditations on what lies just beneath the surface of contemporary life. These are poems that trouble over the idea of failure even as they continually recommit to the present moment. This is fierce music performed in a minor key.
