POETRY / General
Alexandra Oliver takes us on a journey of escape from the suburbs of North America to Glasgow, Scotland. Training her eye on the locals?on the streets, by rivers, in museums, in playgrounds, in their own homes, in the ill-starred town of Lockerbie?Oliver reflects on issues of escape, exile, memory and identity, while traveling back into her own past.

Alexandra Oliver was born in Vancouver, BC. Her last book Meeting the Tormentors in Safeway (Biblioasis 2013) was the recipient of the 2014 Pat Lowther award. Oliver is the co-editor (with Annie Finch) of Measure for Measure: An Anthology of Poetic Meters (Random House/Everyman 2014) as well as a co-editor of Canadian formalist journal The Rotary Dial, and a contributing editor for both Partisan and ARC Poetry. She lives in Burlington, Ontario.

Praise for Let the Empire Down

"One of the most exciting things about her work is the way she takes a different route from the in-your-face newness and hybridity our market now demands."—The Walrus
