Here in There, Angela Carr's third book of poetry, is a lyrical petition to the human faculty of attention. In constant motion, the poems locate unusual instances of connection. They ask, do we give or pay attention? And what do we attend to? How do we decide what merits our attention? In a world where stillness is elusive, can we give or pay attention to anything but that which outlives our own distraction? Turning our attention to the senses, in Here in There, touch informs inscription, credit becomes an audible vibration. Carr's poems form traceable and untraceable patterns, disappearing economies of material.

Angela Carr is the author of two poetry books, Ropewalk (2006) and The Rose Concordance (2009). As a translator, she translated Coit by Chantal Neveu (2012). Originally from Montreal, she now lives in New York City where she teaches creative writing. Her first book, Ropewalk, was nominated for the McAuslan First Book Prize. Carr is a member of the League of Canadian Poets and the Quebec Writers' Federation.

Carr constructs a delicate tower of a book, one that sways and seems fragile but never topples.
- Winnipeg Free Press

[Carr] crafts lines that follow lines that build upon other lines to forward, push and wash over like water, deep into a prose that swims between abstracts and the concrete.
