Anne Michaels Book and Novel

Anne Michaels - Author


Anne Michaels' most recent book, Poems, published in 2000, includes three collections of poetry: The Weight of Oranges, which won the Commonwealth Prize for the Americas; Miner’s Pond, which won the Canadian Authors Association Award and was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award and the Trillium Award; and Skin Divers. Her first novel, Fugitive Pieces, was published by Bloomsbury in 1997 to worldwide critical acclaim. Fugitive Pieces won the Orange Prize and the Trillium Award among others, and was shortlisted for the Giller Prize and the Canadian Booksellers Association Author of the Year Award. Anne Michaels has also composed music for the theatre.

Weaving historical moments with the quiet intimacy of human lives, The Winter Vault, published by Bloomsbury in May 2009 and in paperback in May 2010, tells of the ways in which we salvage what we can from the violence of life.

Born in 1958, Anne Michaels lives in Toronto.
