Description

The prose poems of My Life in Pictures are about the life and times of Canadian poet and novelist, Christian McPherson. He runs his own narrative through a film projector and what illuminates onto the page is a poignant coming of age story, along with the harrowing trails of dealing with a mentally ill father, relationships won and lost, and a lifetime search to find meaning in the world. McPherson infuses his story with his love of cinema, beginning at his conception and moving one film at a time to his present middle age. My Life in Pictures is a book best read in dim lighting with a bag of popcorn.
