Product Description

Review

"He has the poet's instincts, the knack for turning a good phrase, and the verbal grit and suppleness to keep the reader engaged . . . an important talent."  —National Post


"The effective use of rhyme testifies to Murray's mastery of language within formal constraints. . . . Filled with allusion, euphony, and thoughtful content, Whiteout is well worth consideration." —Quill and Quire (April 2012)


"In this book, Murray's celebrated lyric virtuosity is tempered, or rather, deepened, by the kind of knowing humility that makes for great drinking songs. Whiteout speaks in the wry, stunned voice of a man answering time's wake-up call." —Globe and Mail (May 4, 2012)

This is the first book I turned to when my father died. Not for solace or comfort, but for its sense of the universal in the quietest, stillest moments.

This is modern poetry at its best. Murray's offerings are challenging, exploring new ground in content and form.
