With Flicker and Hawk Friesen expands the scope of his highly praised earlier works. These are poems from the gut and heart, occasionally underlined by other voices, dealing with themes of mortality, love, marriage, and spiritual explorations.
Patrick Friesen, former Winnipegger, now lives in Vancouver and teaches at Kwantlen University College. Among his most recent work is a poetry collection, the breath you take from the lord. A collection of essays, Interim: Essays and Meditations, and a new book of poetry are both due in 2006.
