The Skiers: New and Selected Poems is a selection from Jill Bialosky’s three collections published in the US, plus a body of new work.

"Bialosky is ultimately a poet of empathy, the need for it and the solace and power it brings."
Ian Pople, The Manchester Review

Drawing on her experiences of childhood and adolescence, of childbirth and death, of motherhood, love and sexuality, she creates poems that are at once moving, unflinchingly honest and marked by a consummate technical skill. She has been described by Gerald Stern as "the poet of the secret garden, the place, at once, of grace and sadness" and her poetry has a dignity, a magic and a passion that makes it utterly distinctive.

"Bialosky's work derives its strength from her obsessive disquietude about her past, her inability to escape it, and its ceaseless consequences."
The Warwick Review
