I’m happy to announce that my review of Edward Nixon’s poetry collection, The Fissures of Our Throats, appeared online at The Town Crier just last night. I can’t say much about the review that isn’t already up there, except that I loved writing it (it always surprises me how rewarding it is to spend serious time reading and writing about poetry) and that I hope its readers gain something worthwhile from its paragraphs. And, of course, that you should read the book! If you’re only looking for a taste (and a take) of Nixon’s work, though, you can check out the review here.
For those not in the know, The Town Crier is the bloggy wing of The Puritan online literary magazine, both of which I have tremendous respect for. I especially appreciate the effort both publications put into providing a platform for non-fiction writing about contemporary Canadian literature; considering how great it’s been working with their editorial staff, I hope I’ll have the chance to contribute to that platform again in the future!
