Sneaking Through the Evening

This new collection of poems comes from a writer Al Purdy has compared to Emily Dickinson and Margaret Avison.

Book Description

Writing in his introduction to McCarthy's book She Reminds Me of Vermeer, Al Purdy says: "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."

Bittersweet and gently insightful, the poems in Sneaking through the Evening are marked with the fastidious attention to craft that readers have come to expect from a fine poet.
