Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa launch tour!
My new book is out. It looks beautiful. It is the most insane book of poetry ever published in Canada, except perhaps for The Better Poems of Peter Paul Van Camp. I wrote it with 29 collaborators. It was published by Mansfield Press, under my own imprint, "a stuart ross book."
It's called Our Days in Vaudeville. I thought up that title, and then I inserted into a collaborative poem I was working on with Mark Laba to make it look like the title had grown organically from the book. Don't tell anyone.
On Sunday, I'm leaving for a brief tour of three cities, along with four other Mansfield Press authors: Stephen Brockwell, Jason Camlot, Glen Downie and Sara Heinonen. Stephen's and Jason's books were also published under my imprint at Mansfield. In each of the cities, I will have a few of my collaborators read our collaborative poems. it's going to be fun.
Here's all the info.
First, the new books:
