Prior to her stunning début novel, Fugitive Pieces , Anne Michaels had already won prizes and acclaim for her two poetry collections. The Weight of Oranges and Miner ' s Pond are now brought back into print in this one-volume collector's edition.
Published in 1986, The Weight of Oranges created a sensation, garnering the kind of praise rarely accorded a first book of poems. It went on to win the Commonwealth Prize for the Americas. Miner ' s Pond appeared in 1991 and received the Canadian Authors Association Award, and was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award and the Trillium Award.
