Witty, wonderful and disturbing all at the same time, Candy from Strangers, Diana Hartog's second book, sparkles with the same unforgettable images and turns of phrase as her award-winning Matinee Light. It is a book to return to again and again, in which the passions, fears and delights of the past and present merge in a haunting, dream-like clarity.
Diana Hartog has published four collections of poetry: Ink Monkey (Brick, 2006); Polite to Bees (Coach House, 1992), nominated for the BC Book Prize; Candy from Strangers (1986), winner of the BC Book Prize; and Matinee Light (1983), winner of the Gerald Lampert Award. She has also written a memoir, No Hippies Allowed (1994) and a novel The Photographer’s Sweethearts (1996). Her short fiction has been shortlisted for the Journey Prize. She lives in New Denver, BC and winters in California.
