Razovsky at Peace

By (author): Stuart Ross

Touching, hilarious, and terrifying: the follow-up collection by 2000 Trillium Award Nominee. In his third major collection of poetry, Stuart Ross blazes surprising, new paths. Razovsky At Peace still showcases his trademark humour, surrealism, and absurd take on the banal, but also delves into darker, more raw territory. While once again challenging our perception of suburbia, capitalism, and hamburgers, his trembling characters now stumble awkwardly into litter-strewn rural landscapes, emotional rapture, and even terrified, unadvisable love.

Accessible, conversational, and dynamic, his work appeals even to people who hate poetry. There is no one in Canada writing quite like Stuart Ross.

“Stuart Ross is one of North America’s most active and fiercely independent literary populists.” — Richard Huttel, Another Chicago Magazine

“Stuart Ross’s preferred form of self-indulgence is clean, clever and thoroughly entertaining.… Ross is well-known in Toronto as a skillful performer of his work and as an irreverent, uncompromising writer.”— Kevin Connolly, Arts Editor, eye Weekly

“Ross (is) a master butcher in the delicatessen of humanity.” — Kathleen Hickey, NOW
