9780747572619: The Cinnamon Peeler

If Michael Ondaatje's novels have the compression and power of poetry, his poems read like narratives that have been pared down to their essence. The poems that have been brought together in this electrifying volume are stylish yet endlessly surprising explorations of friendship and passion, family history and personal mythology. Spanning twenty-seven years and representing the best poems from Ondaatje's hard-to-find earlier collections, The Cinnamon Peeler is a masterpiece of intelligence, wit and an exultant love of language.

From the Back Cover:

“Michael Ondaatje’s poems read with the same whimsical precision and authority one finds in his prose. He is the most sensibly ironic writer I’ve read in years, and the most generously disposed. Would that all worlds were this deftly attended.”
–Robert Creeley

“Ondaatje is one of the country’s best, a formidable craftsman and artist.”
The Whig-Standard, Kingston

“You feel yourself deep inside his mind and heart, and from there you feel the poem dance.”
–Sharon Olds

From the Inside Flap:

Michael Ondaatje's new selected poems, The Cinnamon Peeler, brings together poems written between 1963 and 1990, including work from his most recent collection, Secular Love. These poems bear witness to the extraordinary gifts that have won high praise for this truly original poet and novelist.
