A Record of Writing
An Annotated and Illustrated Bibliography of George Bowering

By Roy Miki

Canada’s first poet laureate George Bowering is one of the best known writers and literary personalities in the nation. Poet, novelist, essayist, historian, critic and teacher, he is a prolific, irrepressible writer whose works have been published and produced in an extraordinary variety of forms. A Record of Writing traces the development of Bowering’s consciousness as a writer through four decades of work—from his early days with the Oliver Chronicle and The Ubyssey, to his involvement in the avant-garde writing community of the 1960s and 1970s, to his life as a mature writer, confident in a wide range of literary genres and activities.

Dr. Roy Miki’s unique bibliographic method proposes that the writing cannot be separated from the writer: throughout the book there are illustrations, photographs, annotations, choice excerpts from Bowering’s works, and passages from his lively correspondence, all of which illuminate and enrich the tremendously detailed bibliography.
