Poetry. ALL THE NAMES BETWEEN is Julia McCarthy's third collection. Grounded in the experience of presence in which the external and internal meet, a crossroads of consciousness where "a language without a name / remembers us" and the poem is a votive act, ALL THE NAMES BETWEEN reflects the shadow-light of being, of what is and what isn't, of the seen and the unseen, the forgotten and the remembered; here "every elegy has an ode at its centre / every ode has an elegy around its edges."
Julia McCarthy is originally from Toronto, ON. She spent a decade living in the U.S., most notably in Alaska and Georgia. She also lived in Norway and spent significant time in South Africa before returning to Canada and settling in rural Nova Scotia where she worked as a potter to support her poetry habit. She is the author of two previous poetry collections: Stormthrower (Wolsak and Wynn, 2002) and RETURN FROM EREBUS (Brick Books, 2010), the latter of which received the Canadian Authors Association Poetry Award.
