Description

77 Fragments of a Familiar Ruin by Thomas King (Cherokee and Greek), an award winning novelist, short story writer, scriptwriter, and photographer, presents his first collection of poems. In 77 Fragments of a Familiar Ruin, Thomas King uses 77 poems to delve into personal, historical and contemporary issues that have affected Indigenous peoples. He does this through his interpretation of Creation stories. The poems reflect and often refer to previous poems as the past, present, future, past... and so critiques the circularity of past and contemporary issues. Awarded Gerald Lampert Memorial Award for Poetry.
