"What a joy to have a volume of selected poems by this marvelous Canadian poet, storyteller, truth-teller, visionary."
— Ursula K Le Guin, New York Times Book Review
“One of the most original poets alive. . . .”
— Books in Canada
“Crozier’s fans have come to expect graceful clarity, sly humour, a strong affinity for the animal world and a subversive feminist tilt to the mirror she holds up to human affairs.”
— Toronto Star
“Lorna Crozier’s The Blue Hour of the Day reads like one long autobiographical poem of astonishing coherence and beauty, and so powerful that, after I’d closed the book, I found that I’d unwittingly learnt several of the lines by heart.”
- Alberto Manguel, Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year
