Reviews

"David Groulx finds humor in tragedy; signs of an intellectual poet when dealing with brutal reality."-Lola Koundakjian, author of The Accidental Observer and Advice to a Poet and editor of the Armenian Poetry Project."Visceral, lyrical, transgressive -- David Groulx's Wabigoon River Poems are a post-apocalyptic journey through the indigenous experience. Weaving allegorically through time, place, and culture, these poems challenge the state of indigenous poetry. These poems are touchstones and Groulx is an alchemist of language." -Mark McCawley, Urban Graffiti"Wabigoon River starts hundreds of years ago and takes us through history to the present day. We keep turning the pages but the remnants of each poem echo behind us. From the haunting small town to the feast's alluring lips, we are intrigued, seduced and leave knowing so much more." -Katherena Vermette, author of North End Love Songs, winner of 2013 Governor General Literary Award for Poetry
