The Word for SandBook - 1988
Winner of the Governor General's Award for Poetry
Winner of the Pat Lowther Award
The poems are informed by the author's long sojourns in both Canada and Europe, and a new horizon appears: the author gets acquainted with a group of refugees from the Near East and in some of the poems describes their predicament and her own identification with these homeless people, who begin to define a new country of the mind.
