king's(mère) is an imaginative and audacious interpretation of the life of William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canada’s 10th prime minister. In his debut collection, Nathan Dueck explores the realm where poetry and prose meet, through seances, letters, diary entries and faux bible scripture, all written by King.
“Finally, a Canadian that’s bigger than life! Bigger even than Canada! Thank you, Mr. Dueck.”
—Guy Maddin, filmmaker, My Winnipeg, author of From the Atelier Tovar
