Books by Michael Fraser
"A new, exciting voice has emerged in Canada’s poetry scene. The poet blends his unique heritage — birth in Grenada, boyhood in Edmonton and teaching high school in Toronto — with an unerring eye
and ear for contrast and detail. All of Fraser’s lines crackle with an energy fuelled by deep empathy and the ability to take language to the edge."
