Part of The Writing Life series

"Passionate, hilarious, kick-ass poetry."
     - Susan Musgrave, The Vancouver Sun

Robert Priest is one of the few Canadian artists who has been successful as both a writer and a musician. A composer of lush love poems and a widely quoted aphorist, he is the author of 14 books and numerous recordings. His aphorisms have found their way into The Farmer's Almanac and Colombo's Canadian Quotations, while a song he wrote for rock diva Alannah Myles was a number one hit. Robert is also a beloved children's author whose songs and poems are often played on Sesame Street.
