David W. McFadden has been exploring the Japanese forms of haiku and tankas for six decades. This is the first full-length collection of his work in those forms. The 400 or so poems in this collection create a mesmerizing overview of his life and his philosophy. With his usual tenderness and humour, he talks of the great tragedies of life and the great moments of whimsy and magic.

David W. McFadden has been publishing poetry since the early 1960s. Why Are You So Sad? Selected Poems of David W. McFadden (Insomniac Press) was shortlisted for the 2008 Canadian Griffin Prize for Poetry, and Be Calm, Honey (Mansfield Press) was shortlisted for the 2009 Governor General's Award for Poetry (his third such nomination). In 2013, McFadden won the Canadian Griffin Prize for Poetry for What's the Score? (Mansfield Press). He is the author of about 30 books of poetry, fiction, and travel writing. McFadden lives in Toronto.
