Description

In poems that are smart and gorgeously funny, Ariel Gordon's Stowaways careens between life as we-know-it on the Canadian prairies and the frayed yet familiar edges of what-if. What if a beluga from Churchill hooked up with a Gore-Tex-ed tourist? What if knowing Morse Code would save your bacon during the zombie apocalypse? Half survival guide, half invasive species list, these are poems that stick to your socks.

Editorial Review

"Stowaways is well imagined and well crafted, each poem tight, the poet's attention evident. From wildlife to the clutter of the everyday to "how-to" offerings, the reader is charmed and enticed by the poet's light touch and sure pen. Images jump out at us, grab us by the throat, leave us gasping. Ariel Gordon's second collection is as strong as the parts of its sum." - Margaret Michele Cook, Katia Grubisic, and Paul Savoie, judges of the 2015 Lansdowne Prize for Poetry / Prix Lansdowne de Poesie.
