BEST POETRY AWARD, ASSOCIATION FOR MORMON LETTERS
The sentiments Linda Sillitoe expresses in this collection reflect most people’s moods: a feeling of inner freedom in one moment, followed by a sense of mortal limitation and even dread in the next—from hope to despair, but in language of surprising beauty. Several of the poems first appeared in City Arts, the Deseret News, Dialogue, Exponent II, Network, Sunstone, Utah Holiday, Weber Studies, or the anthology Harvest.
Linda Sillitoe is a former staff reporter at the Deseret News and features editor for Utah Holiday magazine. She is the author of non-fiction Salamander: The Story of the Mormon Forgery Murders, fiction Windows on the Sea, and poetry Crazy for Living and co-producer of a PBS-affiliated documentary on the Navajo.
