About the Author
Glen Downie has been praised for his moving and finely crafted poetry on a variety of subjects. But his poems on illness and healing, arising from his work as a medical social worker for over ten years, have made a particularly profound impression. With his appointment as Medical Humanities Writer-in-Residence at Dalhousie University Medical School in the fall of 1999, Downie became the first poet ever to formally serve a residency at a Canadian medical school.
