Throughout, Laird teases magic from the landscape (where clouds are "handwritten in loose cursive" and hills can be "read in translation") in poetry with a strong, exuberant voice.

Running through this collection is a disturbing sense that even the clearest perceptions?shaped by habits of speech and thought?can be treacherous, and standing on the highest rocks is a perilous act of faith: Walk the edge of the cliff?up here Eighty-seven feet falling sheer to the sea You are precarious, the cliff is sure? You need to be exact now.

This book contains six of the eighteen fairy tales from Andrew Lang's Blue Fairy Book (1889). The word "nationality" can be used to indicate what citizenship a person has, but means nothing more than that. Everybody needs help making in this crazy world of ours, Some days it's hard to even get out of bed especially if it's raining outside and it seems as if the whole world is against you.

With a precise eye for form and a clear love for the tone and timbre of language, Steven Laird creates a profound and surreal sense of place and time, upending it all with brilliant irony. Throughout, Laird teases magic from the landscape (where clouds are "handwritten in loose cursive" and hills can be "read in translation") in poetry with a strong, exuberant voice. This charlatan is no ordinary snake-oil salesman. He knows you need to name a thing before you can even see it, and his warning is clear—never confuse your desires with the real thing. Like the charlatan, Steven Laird has more than a few tricks up his sleeve, seeking to heal the invisible wounds of soul and mind, binding our longing for a great spiritual knowing to the experience of our daily lives. Whether in raucous celebration or private communion, his poems work towards the creation of a world from the thin air of words."

—Mark Callanan, poet

The title might suggest snake oil or smoke and mirrors, and the book's cover is distractingly gorgeous, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's all appearances--this first collection of poetry by Steven Laird is the real McCoy.
Laird conjures poems with a skilful hand and a clear passion for the mysteries revealed in language. Coupling imagination with an experience that includes time spent living in Ontario and on the East Coast of Canada, he offers the reader a chance to wander in, to wonder, then to want to be drawn past the veil of the ordinary.
This book is solid magic.

Steven Laird has the ability to lure the senses into lush paradise with the touch of a pen. His poetry is pure art and has the ability to take you sailing on the ocean, reach into the heart and twist the emotions, or plunge you into depths of beauty.

I was very impressed with this compilation of poetry and I am ravenous for more. It is definatly a highlight of my literary collection
