Julia Guance
Author of
Remarkable in its language and in its unsettling simplicity, Rocket Science 
explores the mundane and the idiosyncratic with dazzling power
“…With canny prose, [Guance] demonstrates both the fundamental aloneness of 
each of us and the miracle of civilized connection we manage moment by 
moment while the inner self toils away.”- JIM BARTLEY The Globe & Mail

Beth Follett
Author of
With language that is lush and startling and a shape that is disjointed and 
elliptical, Tell It Slant is a brave and beautiful book.
“For all its emphasis on formal manipulation, carefully constructed images 
and flights of pure imagination, the book is also extremely grounded.  The 
emotions it delivers are real and painfully vivid.” Maureen Phillips, Xtra!
