Everyone loves a circus, and Michael Harris's first collection since his much-acclaimed Selected Poems (2002) offers readers the chance to run away and join a project of great originality and distinctiveness.

Stocked with colourful personalities who earn their living under the Big Top--from clowns to acrobats, tightrope walkers to lion tamers--Circus recreates the drama and mystique of the centre ring with enough peek-behind-the-curtain moments to ground this secret society in the nitty-gritty of marriage, parenthood, old age, and death. And, like a high-wire act in itself, Harris's poems put on a show to be marveled over: carefully choreographed, death-defying, full tumble and daring.
Michael Harris is a two-time winner of the CBC Literary Competition, he also has edited poetry books and anthologies and translated the complete poetry of Marie-Claire Blais (Veiled Countries\ Lives). He runs Montreal Books, a rare and used Internet bookshop. He lives in Montreal, Quebec.
