Here is the follow-up collection to Priscila Uppal’s Winter Sport: Poems. Uppal, who was the poet-in-residence for Canadian Athletes Now during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, is currently in London writing about the Summer Olympics with the characteristic wit and whimsy that made Winter Sport: Poems such a popular title. As before, physical and verbal acrobatics will meet in a dazzling competition of risky play, inventive movements, and daring heights. It will fulfill all your summer sport poetry needs and is now available as a pre-order at a discounted price.
