Review Round Up

The Winnipeg Free Press, in their annual poetry round-up, has called Zach Wells's Jailbreaks the best anthology of the year.

Zach Wells' anthology Jailbreaks: 99 Canadian Sonnets (Biblioasis, 160 pages, $20) was the year's best Canadian anthology. It reminds us how much variety is possible in this venerable Renaissance form, since everyone had the same 14-line structure to work with.

The New York Times has listed Bruce Jay Friedman's Three Balconies as among its editor picks in the December 28th issue.

Rebecca Rosenblum's Once was mentioned in the Toronto Star Best of round up as well, and was reviewed glowingly in the Westmount Examiner. It was also reviewed quite warmly in the Rover.
