Review of Between Dusk and Night
From Judges' Comments , Canadian Authors Association, June 12, 2013

CAA Award for Poetry

Between Dusk and Night by Emily McGiffin – shortlisted for the 2013 CAA Award for Poetry

Judges’ Comments: There is an acute elegiac listening moving through McGriffin’s first book, as if time were a place in which she tries carefully to craft “how to slip beyond the confines of our scanty minds.” In doing so, she is finely attuned to both the tangible and the intangible, the space of the natural world and the human, and their intricate interweaving. These spare poems have a beautiful sadness.
