hungree throat
a novel in meditaysyun
By bill bissett

Written in his unique phonetic language, bill bissett’s second novel-poem, hungree throat, recounts the relationship of two men – one bold and unafraid, the other burdened by terrible memories and unable to trust. We witness ten years of a shared life marked by hunger “4 breething   being   singing   eeting   digesting speeking   saying   food   kissing   watr   love.”

“…an interesting and intriguing reading/viewing of the struggles of coming to terms with, and visualizing, a tumultuous world and ‘how we feel abt unsirtintee.’”
Canadian Literature

“... bissett’s capable of transforming even the most banal thought into poetry.”
– Georgia Straight
