About the Book       "Anne Cimon´s poetry is bold, lyrical, evocative, touching on a gamut of themes from loss of self to nature to love."
            The Montreal Gazette

   An Angel around the Corner/ Un ange autour du coin is Anne Cimon´s fourth book of poetry and it shines with the strength and clarity that comes from an honest confrontation with loss and grief. The collection continues to define the spiritual progress of a contemporary woman. Reminiscent of Jack Kerouac´s "desolation angels", these poems attest to the power of friendship and love.
   Of All We Need/Tout ce qu´il faut, poet Harold Rhenisch remarked: "These free verse poems are sweet, but not cloying, simple, but not simplistic, devotional, but not dogmatic, human, but not humanistic, and very quietly lyrical. The French versions are musical and flowing. The English versions are simple dances whispered under the breath."

   An Angel around the Corner/ Un ange autour du coin est le quatrième livre de poésie de Anne Cimon et il brille de force et clairté qui résultent d´une confrontation honnête avec la perte et la douleur. Cette collection continue de définir le progrès spirituelle d´une femme contemporaine. Rappelant les "anges de la désolation" de Jack Kerouac, ces poèmes attestent du pouvoir de l´amitié et de l´amour.

About the Author Anne Cimon
Anne Cimon is from Montreal, Quebec. She has recently published her fourth book "An Angel around the Corner- Un ange autour du coin" with Borealis Press. The collection reflects her bilingual heritage and spiritual quest. Anne has been writing seriously since the late seventies. She studied the craft with international poet Irving Layton at Concordia University. He remarked of her work: "She possesses the gift for the significant detail, the right word, and the most important element of poetry, surprise." Anne was living in Toronto when her first book "A Skin of Snow" appeared in 1981. Poems and a short novel explore the subject of love. Anne worked at the Longhouse Bookshop where she had the opportunity to learn more about Canadian literature and meet many authors. In 1985, she returned to Montreal and worked at the Westmount Library. She published her second volume "No Country for Women" with Mosaic Press in 1993. This collection spoke of her love for nature, and interest in inner and outer landscapes. In 1994, Anne was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. She moved to the village of Sutton in the Eastern Townships to help her recovery. Her third collection "All We Need - Tout ce qu'il faut" was published by Borealis Press in 2002. This was her first bilingual edition and the themes are loss and healing.
