In 2013, Tim Liardet met an American poet during a blizzard in Boston and the two began an immediate, life-transforming love affair. The World Before Snow is a result, this award-winning poet’s tenth collection which discovers new dimensions in his language and form. It is a book of passionate extremes.

The self-portrait is itself reinvented and remains in transition. The poems, document some of the ways in which a particular species of love can allow for the rediscovery of identity. All the fragments of persona previously put forth to the world are stripped away to expose a raw new self.
