If you’ve ever wanted "to read with the page turned/upside–down, craving a different perspective," you’ll want to enter Unfamiliar Weather, a world of beauty and menace, where "electricity floats just above the surface/of events, phosphorescent/as the ghosts of jellyfish." Beneath the glittering glaciers, you can hear the sound of boulders shifting "like knuckles cracking before a fight," and witness a wind storm that threatens to turn loose the "wilderness waiting in everything," revealing the bare terrain of human isolation. In this turbulent, unpredictable climate, Chris Hutchinson’s deft, intelligent poems explore our place in the world, our relationships to nature, to each other, to language, and to art.

Chris Hutchinson was born in Montreal and has lived in Victoria, Edmonton, Vancouver and most recently, Phoenix, Arizona. His poems have been translated into Chinese and have appeared in numerous Canadian and U.S. publications. He is the author of the poetry collection, Unfamiliar Weather (Muses’ Company, 2005).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give me MORE This is an outstanding literary accomplishment. I love the imagery, the heart rending emotion and the modesty of this writer. This is a book that I will read again and again. Keeping it at hand to savour a verse or two whenever I get the chance.
