Description

Governor General Award-nominated poet Richard Harrison’s latest collection is a meditation on fathers, fatherhood, God and war. Powerful images of aging and death are cut with bright slivers of childhood, all set against the backdrop of the war in Iraq, and the questions war and death raise. Harrison’s transparent verse and beautiful ability to capture the voices around him draw the reader into what may be his best collection yet.
