Overview
Poetry. Deluxe redesign of the two-time Griffin Award winner's first poetry collection. On the occasion of the press's 40th anniversary, Brick Books is proud to present the first of six new editions of classic books from our back catalogue. New material includes a foreword by the poet Margaret Christakos, a "Short Talk on Afterwords" by Carson herself, and cover art and design by the renowned typographer Robert Bringhurst. First issued in 1992, SHORT TALKS is Carson's first and only collection of poems published with an independent Canadian press. It announced the arrival of a profound, elegiac and biting new voice. SHORT TALKS can comfortably stand alongside Carson's other bestselling and award-winning works.

The renowned ancient Greek scholar's first book beautifully reprinted on amazing paper, with an extra "short talk" on afterwords functioning as the afterword. Sometimes humorous, other times eerie, these prose poems range in topic from waterproofing to Gertrude Stein at 9:30 at night the most fascinating micro lectures you'll ever attend. Nobody has not bought this book after opening it. Open Books Indie Recommend"
