Description

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. king’s(mère) does not offer us the William Lyon Mackenzie King of our school books, but a character “ashamed/to record it all.”
