"Sometimes this town is too damn small," writes Heather Pyrcz. Yet Town Limits, her first collection of poetry, is anything but frustrated by the geographical boundaries of its small town Nova Scotia setting. In her writing, Pyrcz shifts smoothly from community to family to intimacy, always finding focus in the strange mix of irony, beauty and truth that envelopes her world.

Review:
At her best - or even weakest - Pyrcz will speak to many readers of their daily and familial lives, their inner life, their hopes and anxieties. Her manner is generally equable, sensitive, perceptive, rarely surprising or disturbing - a reflective, companionable verse. Michael Thorpe, The New Brunswick Reader
