About the Author

Laisha Rosnau is the author of The Sudden Weight of Snow (McClelland and Stewart, 2002), which was an honourable mention for the Amazon/Books in Canada First Novel Award. Rosnau's first collection of poetry, Notes on Leaving (Nightwood, 2004), won the 2005 Acorn-Plantos People's Poetry Award. Her second, Lousy Explorers (Nightwood, 2009), was a finalist for the Pat Lowther Award for best book of poetry by a Canadian woman. Her most recent book of poetry, Pluck (Nightwood, 2014), was nominated for the national Raymond Souster Award. Rosnau teaches fiction and poetry at UBC, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver Film School and Okanagan College. She and her family are the resident caretakers of Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary in Coldstream, BC.


"Rosnau's narrative is sewn tightly into these verses with the perspective of a novelist joined with the skill of an experienced poet," Elee Kraljii Gardiner, The Ormsby Review

--Elee Kraljii Gardiner "The Ormsby Review "

"These poems have a strength that reminds me of poets whose work anticipates Rosnau's in different ways, beginning with Pat Lowther, Leona Gom and Kristjana Gunnars, and eventually including Stephanie Bolster and Roo Borson. Our Familiar Hunger is a shimmering achievement. It reaches for a story we do not hear enough, but need to hear." John Lent, Arc Poetry Magazine
