Book Description

April 1 2012
Named after the surface condition in which no object casts a shadow, the horizon cannot be seen, and only dark objects are discernible, this collection of poems explores how accidental voyeurism can force reconsideration and reconciliation. The featured pieces delve into the concept of daily life’s heavy weather, illustrating how it establishes measure and how the predatory nature of the accidental conjures unexpected things. This sixth compilation, a decade in the making, is at once taut, tender, and terrifying, shattering convention in the collision of order and rage, formlessness and hard-won serenity.

Product Details

Product Description


"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.
