Description

When Prime Minister Stephen Harper prorogued Parliament (for the second time in a year!) on December 30, 2009, he punted many vital bills into oblivion. But he also inspired hundreds of poems after Mansfield Press announced this government-toppling anthology. This book gathers a range of responsesÑfrom outrage to slapstickÑby acclaimed poets (including Canada's first Parliamentary Poet Laureate and several winners of the Governor General's Award for Poetry), previously unpublished poets and, to paraphrase Stephen Harper, ordinary working Canadians.

Editorial Review

Psalm-like and surreal, diverse and surprising, Something Burned Along the Southern Border maps a seldom-recorded region of Canada, the joint of WindsorÐDetroit, and beyond. Like a scent, this poetry tugs, pulls open our memories. It smells like pancake houses, maple, diesel, tobacco, blood, and forest brush.Ó (Emily Schultz, author of Songs for the Dancing Chicken and Heaven Is Small)
