A Sparrow Came Down Resplendent

Wolsak & Wynn, May 2016

From Wolsak & Wynn:

Always willing to take aesthetic and artistic risks, Stuart Ross is the author of some of Canada’s most daring, and also most rewarding, poetry. Long celebrated for his surreal narratives and humorous wordplay, here Ross focuses more intensely on intimate subject matter – investigating the often complex, often absurd, but always powerful connections between loved ones. The care and delicacy with which he renders these portraits of family members, friends, mentors – and even himself – is nothing short of arresting. And readers – both those familiar with his work and those new to it – will admire the dexterity with which he juxtaposes such pieces with more audacious inventions.
