Walking Fingers: The Story of Polio and Those Who Lived With It

Edited by Sally Aitken and Helen D’Orazio

"Louise Fabiani, Trained in biology and environmental studies, brings novel vocabulary and subjects to poetry...Yet there's nothing elitist in this choice of diction: a reader shares in the poet's instructive, surprising and delightful language." —Geoffrey Cook, The Danforth Review

"Again and again, the craft and good humour, the sheer joie de vivre win us over, the diction, rhythms, description, and narrative raise the text above the quotidian. This is a feast of a first book: as tasty as it is provocative." —Richard Stevenson, Books in Canada

"Fabiani transforms processes like recycling and small events like grilling red peppers or visiting a spa into rich, robust and even funny fare. [...] her poetry is glorious." —McGill News Alumni Quarterly Summer
