About this product
- DescriptionI Was Expecting Someone Taller is actually a collection of people: working people, old people, street people, famous people--from Josephine Baker to Baryshinikov, a woman lunching out with Jesus to a barfly. These poetic portraits are truthful, sometimes tinged with black humour, other times political. Sue Nevill's people break through the flat, artificial surfaces of typical portraits and give us colourful, three-dimensional views of their unexpected natures.
- Author BiographySue Nevill is the author of I Was Expecting Someone Taller, and co-author of Quintet: Themes & Variations. Her poetry has been widely published in such Canadian literary periodicals as The Antigonish Review, CV2, Event, The Fiddlehead and The New Quarterly. She is a longtime resident of Vancouver, BC.
