About this item
Featuring a series of color poems inspired by Fisher Price refrigerator magnets, the poems in this collection are as alive as the world from which they borrow. Besner plumbs the depths of alternative physics, glamour, economics, and virtual reality with great attention to prosody and a bleak sense of humor.
Linda Besner's first book of poetry, The Id Kid, was published in 2011 by Véhicule Press and named as one of the National Post's Best Poetry Books of the Year. She is the former poetry editor of Hazlitt. She lives in Montreal.
