About this title

Synopsis:

In her fourth poetry collection, Alice Burdick delves deeper into the life of a Toronto/Vancouver urbanite who has relocated to small-town Nova Scotia to live, work and raise a family. Her quirky, playful, often surreal poems are deeply imbued with the landscape of Nova Scotia's south shore, as well as her own inner landscape, and the landscape of family. Her poems explore, too, the human vessel in which we carry pain, memory, joy, and existential bewilderment.

About the Author:

Alice Burdick lives in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. She is co-owner of Lexicon Books in Lunenburg, and serves on the board of the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia. In the early 1990s, she was co-editor of The Eternal Network, and assistant coordinator of the Toronto Small Press Fair. She is the author of many chapbooks and three full-length poetry collections: Simple Master (Pedlar Press, 2002); Flutter (Mans?eld Press, 2008); and Holler (Mansfield Press, 2012). Her work has appeared in many magazines, online and in print, and was shortlisted for the First Lemonhound Poetry Prize. Her poetry has been included in several anthologies, including Surreal Estate: 13 Canadian Poets Under the In?uence (The Mercury Press), Shift & Switch: New Canadian Poetry (The Mercury Press), Pissing Ice: An Anthology of New Canadian Poets (BookThug), To Find Us: words and images of Halifax (HRMP), and the forthcoming The Child Alone Anthology (Frog Hollow Press).

Store Description

Shadow Books sells all manner of second-hand, out of print and rare books; but not popular paperback fiction. If we have a speciality, it is a broad academic one embracing the humanities fields of history, politics, classic literature, art history, media, history of ideas. We pride ourselves on setting our prices - quality for quality - at the low end of the range, on the scrupulous way we describe our books, on the rapidity with which we dispatch orders, and on our prompt and friendly response to customers and their queries.
