Description

Timely, important, mischievous, powerful: in a word, exceptional

Seventy-seven poems intended as a eulogy for what we have squandered, a reprimand for all we have allowed, a suggestion for what might still be salvaged, a poetic quarrel with our intolerant and greedy selves, a reflection on mortality and longing, as well as a long-running conversation with the mythological currents that flow throughout North America.

About the Author

Thomas King

THOMAS KING is an award-winning novelist, short story writer, scriptwriter and photographer of Cherokee and Greek descent.

The Inconvenient Indian, a work of non-fiction, won several national prizes and was described by Joseph Boyden as “destined to become a classic of historical narrative.” A member of the Order of Canada and the recipient of an award from the National Aboriginal Foundation, Thomas King has taught at the University of Lethbridge and was Chair of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota before moving to the University of Guelph where he taught Indigenous Literature and Creative Writing.
