Floating Garden, The by D.G. (Douglas Gordon) Jones
Winner of The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 1995
What is interesting about The Floating Garden, to try on its own wry endearing understatement, is the thick constellation of thought and emotion in its seemingly small structures between verbal units. This is a wonderfully lively book – funny and deeply touching – by a man whose poetic dues are all paid up. Is it maturity or youthfulness that lets him lurch, leap, shunt, slide with such perfect confidance? Read it again, the surprise holds while the sense of muchness deepens. – Stan Dragland
