Nautilus and Bone also won the Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Poetry, and is shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Poetry.

To quote editor Micheline Maylor, Nautilus & Bone (Quartet 2020), “… is an outstanding book, the writing is stunning and a true poets’ book for its ability in both form and narrative, and that is, although admittedly biased, absolutely accurate.”
