A moon made of Copper is a collection of non-fiction poems that look at the continual maturing and growth of a human being. The poems were written while touring across Canada, and they capture Bose's experiences meeting people, wandering different cities, and getting into adventures and mis-adventures. This is Bose's second book since Stone the Crow.
In A moon made of copper, Bose "...untangles [himself] from umbilical tombs" to reveal what it takes as a First Nations person to survive the unrelenting human conditions of Aboriginals in this country. His poetic expression untangles the pain, loss and recovery expressed boldly through this volume of poetry. To read this, is to know that journey.-Garry GottfriedsonI've been waiting for a collection like A moon made of copper for over half my life now--and Chris Bose delivers it with an almighty roar. Reminiscent of Patrick Lane, Joseph Dandurand, Chrystos and Bukowski, this collection is brutal, bloody and brilliant. Chris Bose is one of my all-time inspirations. What a ferociously gorgeous roar!
