Special Edition of The Waking Comes Late by Steven Heighton


Governor General’s Literary Award finalist and bestselling author Steven Heighton returns with a collection of laments and celebrations that reflect on our struggle to believe in the future of a world that continues to disappoint us. The poet challenges the boundaries of sleep and even death in these meditations on what lies just beneath the surface of contemporary life. These are poems that trouble over the idea of failure even as they continually recommit to the present moment. This is fierce music performed in a minor key.

A limited-edition hardcover printing of fifty of this book was printed and bound at the Coach House on bpNichol Lane in Toronto.
