Description

Rush Hour is a rivetting collection of spoken word poems written and performed by one of North America’s most powerful new literary voices.

Catherine Hunter was the 1998 winner of the Manitoba Book of the Year for her poetry collection Latent Heat.

Rush Hour includes a “bonus track” recording of the title poem with music accompaniment by the smash hit band The Weakerthans.

Contributor Notes

Catherine Hunter teaches English at the University of Winnipeg.

Editorial Review

“The true gem on this CD is the second version of the title poem, ‘Rush Hour,’ with musical accompaniment by The Weakerthans. The piece is imbued with an unaccountable energy as if Hunter, like us, is hearing the track for the first time.

It is gripping. The music adds an ethereal dimension that complements the haunting nature of the poem. It makes one wonder how we have dared to listen to poetry without musical accompaniment.”

—The Winnipeg Free Press
