In his twenty-first book and sixteenth poetry book, Governor General Award winning poet Robert Hilles honours his dead mother and celebrates the love she instilled in him. These gripping, urgent poems remain accessible even as they resonate deeper meanings. They are poems of love that convey a startling and lasting clarity.

His books have been shortlisted for The Milton Acorn People’s Poetry Prize, The W.O. Mitchell/City of Calgary Prize, The Stephan Stephansson Award, and The Howard O’Hagan Award. He is currently working on a new poetry book, short story collection, Little Pink Houses and a novel set in Thailand, Don’t Hang Your Soul on That.
