Fielder's Choice 
Shortlisted: Gerald Lampert Memorial Award for Poetry
Filled with rich evocations of childhood, travel and landscape, Fielder's Choice, Elise Partridge's masterful debut, delivers up fresh and striking elegiac poems that grapple with their subjects vigorously, unpredictably, and without sentimentality.
Partridge's poetry combines a gifted ear for the vernacular and exuberant verbal skills with an exceptional--and often emotionally powerful--lyric intelligence.
Elise Partridge's prize-winning poems have appeared in Canadian, American, and Irish journals, including Poetry (Chicago), Books in Canada, The Fiddlehead, The Malahat Review, Canadian Literature (Fall 2002), Slate, The New Republic, Boulevard, and Poetry Ireland Review. In 1987 Elise Partridge won a "Special Commendation" in the Arvon International Poetry Contest, judged by Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes. She is an editor and tutor in Vancouver.
