Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cinnamon Peeler brings together poems written between 1963 and 1990, including work from Michael Ondaatje's collection, Secular Love. These poems bear witness to the extraordinary gifts that have won high praise for this truly original poet and novelist.

Review:

"Michael Ondaatje's poems read with the same whimsical precision and authority one finds in his prose. He is the most sensibly ironic writer I've read in years, and the most generously disposed. Would that all worlds were this deftly attended." Robert Creeley

Review:

"You feel yourself deep inside his mind and heart, and from there you feel the poem dance." Sharon Olds
