96 p. New Canadian Poets Series. An atractive, almost as new copy signed by the author on the ffe. "For Inara Steven Heighton Oct/14 95" Book won the the Lampert Award for best first book of poetry. Heioghton has subsequently received many more awards for his writing. "Heighton transforms the rhetoric of dictatorship into poetic occasions; his Stalin "carves from the body of the world an order hewn in his own image." In the book's final section --- he offers an alternative to the brutal modernity of the dictator. Violence of various sorts is again a thematic preoccupation, but a resilient lyric voice is always in the background. Heighton is already an ambitious and very accomplished writer."(M. Miereau - Books in Canada)
