Waiting For Saskatchewan

Fred Wah. Waiting For Saskatchewan. Turnstone, 1985.

A very interesting selection of poems and prose-poems exploring grief, memory, genealogy. Some I found incomprehensible, but others were touching, revealing. Especially the China travels and the Elite series. A reminder that "mixed" is not always "Metis" and that identity is most likely a universal quest only complicated by race[s].
