Aislinn Hunter is an accomplished fiction writer (most recently, What's Left Us), but poetry is her first love. Her poems have been nominated for a prestigious National Magazine Award and are widely praised and published.Governor-General's Award-winning poet Lorna Crozier raves: "From the start, Aislinn never wrote small. Her poems never took the route of skinny imagist responses to the world. Instead, her affirmation that the past and the present are inextricable led her into long, almost prose-like lines and the kind of movements through time that characterize fiction. Her poems, in fact, sometimes feel like highly condensed novels."
