Overview

On the occasion of the press’s 40th anniversary, Brick Books is proud to present the fifth of six new editions of classic books from our back catalogue. This edition of Hard Light features a new Introduction by Lisa Moore, a new Afterword by the author and a new cover and design by the renowned typographer Robert Bringhurst. First published in 1998, Hard Light retells and reimagines his father’s and others’ stories of outport Newfoundland and the Labrador fishery. These deeply felt poems are rooted in the places where “human desire comes up against rock” (John Steffler).

Lisa Moore

Three-time nominee for the Scotiabank Giller Prize (2002, 2005 and 2013), winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and long listed for the Man Booker Prize, Lisa Moore’s intimacy with her native city and province has made her, along with Wayne Johnston and Michael Winter, one of Newfoundland’s (and Canada’s) most important contemporary writers.

Reviews

"In these stories and poems, an intimate, bright world flares up, glowing in the darkness of recent history, full-blown and vivid. "

Lisa Moore
