Richard Harrison's fourth book, Big Breath of a Wish, delves deeply into the linguistic discoveries children make in their first two years of life. It uniquely opens up these discoveries to readers, who identify both with the child and the parents and, through Harrison's clear, suggestive language, rediscover themselves.

Richard Harrison's previous books include Fathers Never Leave You and Hero of the Play. During the writing of Big Breath of a Wish he was the Canadian Writer-in-Residence at the University of Calgary.
