The Serenity of Stone by Michael Fraser

Share |

BookLand Press, 2008

This is Toronto poet Michael Fraser's first book of poetry. Fraser is a wonderful writer that knows both how to tell a good story - many of the poems are narrative in nature - and how to put words together in a sensual and fresh way. You will recognize Toronto in his poems, but he also takes us (among other journeys) to Grenada, his birthplace, and to his boyhood home of Edmonton. If you get the chance to hear Fraser read his poems as part of a spoken word performance, take it. His poems are equally powerful "on stage" as well as "on page."
