About this title

Synopsis:

Poetry. Sophomore collection of exquisite precision and musicality from a classically trained pianist In ORDINARY HOURS, the follow-up to Karen Enns' Gerald Lampert Award-nominated first collection, THAT OTHER BEAUTY, we revisit Enns' rural Mennonite childhood, replete with the sensuousness of "diesel fuel" and "hot peaches." Enns also explores the Mennonite exodus from Russia, tracking its faint but unmistakable reverberations in the daily lives of its survivors and revealing the redemptive character of that dailiness. Reading an Enns poem feels effortless: her rhythms and phrasing are so minutely calibrated that the poem unfolds as if of its own accord.

About the Author:

Karen Enns grew up in a Mennonite farming community in southern Ontario. She currently lives and writes in Victoria, B.C., where she works as a private piano instructor. Her first book of poetry, THAT OTHER BEAUTY (Brick Books, 2010), was nominated for the Gerald Lampert Award. ORDINARY HOURS is her second poetry collection.
