Lane and Crozier's choices reflect the recurring themes that illuminate Nowlan's work. This new volume is truly the best of Alden Nowlan's poetry, and above all is a tribute to a poet who deserves to be treasured for all time.

About the Author

Alden Nowlan was born January 25, 1933 at Windsor, Nova Scotia. Primarily self-educated, Nowlan worked as a newspaperman, and published poetry, plays, short stories, and novels.

Patrick Lane is one of Canada's pre-eminent poets, winner of numerous awards, including the Governor General's Award for Poetry, the Canadian Authors Association Award, the Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence and three National Magazine Awards. His distinguished career spans forty-five years and twenty-four volumes of poetry as well as award-winning books of fiction and non-fiction.
