Girls in the Last Seat Waving

"Her language is uncommonly controlled but stamped with a recognizable rhythmic sense. . . McCarthy is an observer, and the poems are the result of reflection based on an open eye and heart."
-Bruce Whiteman, Event

Book Description

One of Canadian poetry's best-kept secrets is Maureen McCarthy, whose first book She Reminds Me of Vermeer drew accolades across the country. Nine years later, her second collection drew even higher praises.

"I have the sense of seeing things with her eyes and mind, of actually being in her situation, and it's this intimacy that gives her poems power."
-Al Purdy
