Grappling with human extremes

November 10th, 2016

A former money manager and financial journalist, Richard Osler turned to writing poems in 2001. His latest collection Hyaena Season (Quattro Books $18) grapples with the extremes of human experience: from dark undercurrents to tender epiphanies. Whether delving into life from the killing grounds of Rwanda and DR Congo, or closer to home in Canada exploring memories of parents, children, lovers and stories of physical and emotional conflict his focus is always deeply personal; his approach narrative with lyric intensity. Osler lives in Duncan where he is preoccupied on a full-time basis as a poet, workshop leader and blogger. While working as a freelance panelist, he appeared on the CBC Radio’s Morningside with Peter Gzowski more than 200 times over nine years.  978-1-988254-24-1
