Publication Date April 01, 2008
The highly anticipated follow-up to the award-winning poetry collection drift, Kevin Connolly's Revolver is a daring marriage of brilliant technical skill and explosive imagination. Each of the poems in this extraordinary collection is written in a different vocal register -- revolving through poetic voices with precise control and sharp wit. Connolly reveals himself to be one of the few poets in Canada who can pull off such a high wire act, and make it both thrilling and meaningful.
Kevin Connolly is a poet, journalist, and editor. His poetry collection drift won the Trillium Poetry Award, and his collection Revolver was shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize and for the Trillium Award. Kevin lives on a cat farm in Toronto's east end with his partner, writer Gil Adamson.
