In Exploding into Night, Sandy Pool delves into the heart of a grisly murder that took place in the Parkdale area of Toronto. With its dazzling turns and deafening silence, this narrative poem is a stark reappraisal of urban existence and its heartache. Pool's metaphysical landscape speaks in multiple voices and prods the very nature of our collective conscience. A selection of poems from this collection was awarded First Place in the 2009 Elora Writers' Festival Poetry Contest. The collection has been short-listed for the 2010 Governor General's award for English poetry.

"Every Sunday my mother calls to tell me about some kid who's gone missing in this city. I'm not surprised. I don't tell her about the cats, or those white vans, disembodied specters roaring into dark."
