TESTIMONIALS

Soaring familial and historic observations of the world. Alan Hill’s verse here embodies his own lines: a delicate line/winding itself airborne...Elegant, finely textured and transformative.  ~ Dennis E. Bolen author “Anticpated Results”

Alan Hill writes from within the family fractal. Within each poem we find a bit of a map, astonishment, tears, mud, laughter, and light. ~ Joanne Arnott, author, recipient of Gerald Lampert Award 1991, TWUC Council Member 2009

Inhabiting a sibling’s dark perspective and the memory of his own experience, Alan Hill investigates his relationship with brother and family alike. These poems will surprise readers with some startling and intense images like “cigarettes at night/ burning with the pure and atom slipping brightness/ of the first fires...”~ Calvin Wharton, author “The Song Collides” and Chair of the Creative Writing Dept. Douglas College, New Westminster, BC

In this his second collection of poetry, Alan Hill again displays his unique talent with vivid imagery, deep empathy, and well crafted creativity as he exposes the raw edge of his emotion and humanity in a series of poems dealing with the family unit and the effect of mental illness within it. ~ Candice James, Poet Laureate, New Westminster, BC and Director Royal City Literary Arts Society
