ALISON PICK was the 2002 Bronwen Wallace Award winner for most promising unpublished writer under thirty-five in Canada. She has published two volumes of poetry and one previous novel, The Sweet Edge, which appeared to rave reviews and was a Globe and Mail Top 100 Book. After living for a number of years in St. John's, Newfoundland, she now lives in Toronto, Ontario.
"The writing in Far to Go
is clean, crisp and unencumbered. Pick never dwells for too long in an image or metaphor, and she creates small moments that are both lovely and frightening."
