Quillcast is a podcast series from Quill & Quire featuring behind-the-scenes conversations with authors and publishing insiders.
In this episode, Jacob McArthur Mooney chats with Dennis Lee about his most recent poetry collection, Testament (House of Anansi Press), the final book in a decade-long trilogy exploring the dilemma of contemporary existence.
Lee is the author of more than 20 books, including Civil Elegies, which won the Governor General’s Literary Award for poetry in 1972, and the beloved children’s classic Alligator Pie.
McArthur Mooney is the author of two books of poetry. His second collection, Folk (McClelland & Stewart), was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize.
