Shelfari edited the description of Nothing Fell Today but Rain Wednesday, August 25, 2010.
Nominee, Governor General's Literary Awards for Poetry, 2003 Evan Jones brings and exciting new voice to Canadian poetry. His lyrical style shapes a contemporary mood with mythic echoes, marrying the mysterious with the mundane and revealing the stark oppositions and sharp distances in our everyday lives. Nothing Fell Today But Rain includes a variety of forms which draw on geography and a sense of place as its poetic resource. Jones approaches love and longing, and joy and regret with a cool optimism warmed by erotic undercurrents. His sharp prose evokes rivers and highways, bedrooms and telephones, city streets and lake mosquitoes. Yet wherever he takes us, we always return - to the unexpected.
