The Box (New Star Books) is George Bowering’s loving look at the glory days of 1960s Vancouver. Our first poet laureate links together 10 short stories, each introduced by an archival photo and leading toward a delightful twist.
This ninth collection of Bowering’s short stories subtly recaptures an earlier time in our city and is currently shortlisted for the 2010 Vancouver Book Award. The winner of the Award and a $2,000-prize will be announced by Mayor Gregor Robertson on October 19th at City Hall.
George Bowering‘s most recent book of poetry is My Darling Nellie Grey.
