    1. This book contains many of the poems favoured by Nowlan’s readers, with an introduction by Susan Musgrave and a foreword and second introduction by the editors. These pieces are marked by Nowlan’s characteristic observations of everyday life, his simple and unaffected style and a sense of his haunting tenderness and humanity.An understanding of Nowlan’s life is a necessary prelude to understanding his poetry. His humble beginnings and life of poverty have affected his choice of content mat [...]


    2. I picked up this book after seeing "Weakness" and "It's Good to Be Here" in The Giant Book of Poetry collection. I'm greatly indebted to The Giant Book of Poetry for picking up those two lovely poems by a rather obscure poet, because it got me to read this selection.I can understand why Nowlan is so little known.

    3. I have just discovered my favourite poet. Alden Nowlan writes from a place of truth, and he sugar coats nothing. There are so many sticky notes in my copy of this book because there were so many lines and poems that moved me so deeply that I had to mark them for later.


    4. When I was younger I unfairly lumped Nowlan in with a lot of canonical Can-lit poetry. That was a mistake: his voice is vital, irreverent, resonant, and true. It was a real pleasure to read this later rather than never.

    6. I really loved some of these poems. Two of them made me cry. Starting to understand why Fredericton is called "Poet's Corner".:)
