About this product
- Descriptionchildren of air india is a series of elegiac sequences exploring the nature of individual loss, situated within public trauma. The work is animated by a proposition: that violence, both personal and collective, produces continuing sonar, an echolocation that finds us, even when we choose to be unaware or indifferent.
This collection breaks new ground in its approach to the saga that is Canada/Air India, an event and its aftermath that is both over-reported and under-represented in our national psyche.
329 deaths. 82 Children. Canada's worst mass murder. The accused acquitted.
What does it mean to be Canadian and lose someone in Air India Flight 182?
Why does 9/11 resonate more strongly with Canadians than June 23, 1985? The poems in this book search out answers in the everything/ness and thing/ness of an act and its aftermath, revealing a voice that re-defines and re-visions.
Air India never happened. Air India always happens.
