The Silver Palace Restaurant by Mark Abley
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2005
The poems in The Silver Palace Restaurant roam from the Rocky Mountains and the Gaspé Peninsula to Italy, Croatia, and China. At ease with both traditional and post-modern forms, Mark Abley touches on intimacy, parenthood and death, mountain-climbing, hiking, and birding.
Abley’s first collection of poetry in eleven years reveals the keen sensitivity to the nuances of language to be expected from the author of the internationally acclaimed Spoken Here: Travels Among Threatened Languages. He cares deeply about language and The Silver Palace Restaurant is infused with a sharp intelligence and emotion.
