About the Books

TEETH: POEMS 2006–2011, by George Bowering

Every new collection by George Bowering is an event in Canadian poetry. His latest book is an eclectic, lively mix of free verse, list poems, haiku, and more. Whether Bowering is taking on the big themes—love, mortality, politics—or the mundane or trivial, his poems are fresh, snappy, and always provocative. The poetry in Teeth is by turns playful, meditative, and outrageous—odes to his contemporaries, to long-dead bards, to baseball players and jazz musicians, to loved ones lost. An unusual bonus in this volume is an extensive interview with Bowering by Judith Fitzgerald that explores Canadian poetry since the 1960s, what it means to be a poet, and Bowering’s own oeuvre.

MOTHER DIED LAST SUMMER, by David W. McFadden
In 1992, a year after his mother died, poet David W. McFadden took his 78-year-old father, Bill, on a road trip through the U.K. This lively journal of their month-long travels is filled with McFadden’s wit and insight, and his generosity as a storyteller. It is an unusual and intimate portrait of the U.K., and of the many people Dave and his dad ran into on their journey. And it features an introduction by Dave’s now-99-year-old dad, Bill. This book is equal parts memoir, travelogue, and insight into the creative mind of one of Canada’s most beloved poets.

WATER DAMAGE, by Peter Norman
Following on the heels of his critically acclaimed poetry debut, At the Gates of the Theme Park, Peter Norman’s second full collection is as funny and chilling as it is well-crafted. Here, the reader will find mad sonnets, outrageous prose poems, anagrammatic acrobatics, dark tributes, found poems, and many other experiments in form and story-telling. Centrepieces include the epic “Dr. F Attends a Show,” a twisted homage to Margaret Atwood, and the long poem “The Flood,” an athletic journey rich in both humour and tragedy.

SUMMER SPORT: POEMS, by Priscila Uppal

After the success of Winter Sport: Poems, Priscila Uppal went on to become the first-ever Rogers Cup Tennis Poet-in-Residence in 2011 and resumed her position for Canadian Athletes Now for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The acrobatic verse collected out of those unique experiences will enable you to wrestle with Plato, volley with Elizabeth Barrett Browning, eat yams with Usain Bolt, fence with Don Quixote, make soccer history with Canada’s women, and bash chairs in wheelchair rugby. A must-buy for any sports fan, poetry aficionado, English teacher, or Olympic junkie.
Find out more about these books at the Mansfield Press website. And don’t forget — shipping is always free when you order direct from the press!

See you Tuesday!
