In memoriam Brian Fawcett
May 13, 1944 – February 27, 2022
Brian Fawcett was a prize-winning poet, critical thinker, and cultural analyst whose writing and publishing activities were as broad as his intellectual inquiries. He published over twenty books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, four of them with Talonbooks: My Career with the Leafs & Other Stories (1982), Capital Tales (1984), The Secret Journal of Alexander Mackenzie (1985), and Cambodia: A Book for People Who Find Television Too Slow (1986). Cambodia received widespread recognition and remains an influential title. He leaves behind his partner, Fran Piccaluga, and children Jesse, Hartlea, and Max. Talonbooks extends our condolences to them and to all his family and friends. We picture Brian sitting with a good book and an even better glass of wine thinking about his last at bat.
