Jan Zwicky (b. May 10, 1955, Calgary, Alberta, Canada).

The renowned Canadian poet's sixth collection of verse.

"'Thirty-seven Small Songs & Thirteen Silences' is a vital addition to a remarkable body of work. The songs in this collection are miniature odes, lyric apostrophes to household fixtures, human emotions, shades of light, currents of air, sounds, departures and solitudes. Zwicky's poems walk the tightrope between thinking and being, strengthening the act of imagination that connects past, present and future." - from the rear wrap-around band.
