The winners of the 2015 BC Book Prizes have been announced and Eve Joseph has won the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize!
Joseph’s book, In the Slender Margin: The Intimate Strangeness of Death and Dying (HarperCollins Canada), is part memoir, part meditation, and explores death from an “insider’s” point of view. Using the threads of her brother’s early death and her twenty years of work in hospice care, Eve Joseph utilizes history, religion, philosophy, literature, personal anecdote, mythology, poetry and pop culture to discern the unknowable and illuminate her travels through the land of the dying.
Eve Joseph’s work has been published in a number of Canadian and American journals and anthologies. Her poetry collections, The Startled Heart and The Secret Signature of Things, were both nominated for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. She lives in Victoria, BC.
