Shortlisted for the 2001 Pat Lowther Award and the 2001 Dorothy Livesay Award for Poetry (BC Book Prizes) In her second book, Slow-Moving Target, Sue Wheeler unwraps more than the Fifties. She unwraps a whole shopful of environments and events, and winds them up and sets them down to delight her readers. There is no sentimentalizing here -- either of people or of other places and times -- and yet the writing is so consistently sharp, perceptive, and clear, that the overall direction is always towards hope, towards the light.
