Hard Light

by Michael Crummey

Hard Light Synopsis

Shortlisted for the 1999 Milton Acorn Memorial People's Poetry PrizeIn Hard Light Michael Crummey retells and reinvents his father's stories of outport Newfoundland and the Labrador fishery of a half century ago. Speaking through generations of storytellers, he conjures a world of hard toil and heavy weather, shot through with stoicism, grim humour, endurance, and love. This is writing that is supple and charged with intensity, language that vivifies - electrifies - whoever and whatever it describes. "e;Michael Crummey's lucid, dexterous writing shies away from nothing, gives us the concrete particulars of daily life, the burials and butcheries, the night-time thoughts. He knows this world from the inside."e; - John Steffler
