for Inheritance and Other Poems

Jury Citation

“The curtain is raised on blue collar work. Here’s a poet of sweat and ambition and all the sensory detail and wild character that builds a world. Heroic, this writer, ’smoother than concrete.’” — 2011 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Kate Braid, Gail Harris, and Robert Priest)
