about

In her first book of poetry since The Small Words in My Body, which won the Pat Lowther Prize for 1990, Karen Connelly writes, in the tradition of the writer-adventurer, of vivid encounters and reflections abroad and at home, continuing her pursuit of "living knowledge of the world." These poems enact journeys of the body and heart with candour and sensuous grace, catching the very texture of human experience in the lithe, muscular lines which have a cat-like metaphorical reach.

Karen Connelly, a native of Calgary, has lived in Thailand, Spain, France and Greece. Her travels are an integral part of her writing. Touch the Dragon, a travel book deriving from her experience in Thailand, won the 1993 Governor General's Award for Non-fiction.
