Description

Chronicling the birth of Tish, the University of British Columbia’s poetry newsletter, this history describes the ideologies and devotion of its contributing poets and editors and the publication that followed. The evolution of this artistic venture, which represented a clear break from older Canadian poets and styles and a clash with entrenched Canadian cultural and political assumptions, is related by one of its founding members.

Editorial Reviews

"[An] enormously detailed account of Davey's life...and some revealing cultural glances at the '60s along the way." — Saskatoon Star Phoenix (June 25, 2011)


"Frank Davey's anecdotal style ensures that anyone interested in West Coast writing, Canadian literature, or culture in general will glean much of interest here." — Georgia Straight (August 9, 2011)
