The cover of my new book: Moon Baboon Canoe


This is the beautiful cover of my about-to-be-released new book Moon Baboon Canoe. The cover was designed by editor Stuart Ross and the book will appear with Mansfield Press.

Here's the back cover description:

A follow-up to his acclaimed The Porcupinity of the Stars, Moon Baboon Canoe is filled with Gary Barwin’s trademark humour, invention, musicality and craft. These witty and surprising poems confront subjects as diverse as time machines, elves, hummingbirds, birth and cows, yet manage to explore the perennial themes of poetry: delight, mortality, childhood, love, the natural world and squirrels. It is a moon-guided, baboon-paddled canoe of a book, and around each bend in the river we find the sources of our strength: consolation, goofiness and joy.
