A first collection of poems from the winner of the Cuffer Prize for short fiction
Our Gleaming Bones Unrobed is a haunting debut, a poetry collection thematically focused on discovering the structure (the figurative bones) beneath the appearance (or skin) of a situation.
This poetry is at once memento mori — a reminder and celebration of our mortality — and a lyrical exploration of the spirituality of the mundane, the possibility for revelation found in the commonplace.
Grant Loveys received a 2010 Newfoundland and Labrador Arts & Letters award for poetry and was the winner of the Telegram’s 2011 Cuffer Prize for short fiction. His work has appeared in numerous North American and European publications. He lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

“Buying the collection leads to more loves." — Chronicle Herald
“Lovely and strange, promising plenty of poems that are ‘half drunk on moonlight / like froth from a dish of freezing milk’ — while staying quiet and intimate, drawing the reader in with a conversational tone and the promise of future intimacy.” — The American Reader
