About this product
- DescriptionIn this jarring collection, Adam Pottle cracks open the world of disability, illuminating it with an idiom that is both unsettling and exhilarating. His subjects are gritty and multifarious: amputee sex swingers; drug-related shootings; institutionalized adolescents coerced into sterilization. Difficult as their circumstances may seem, Pottle's denizens learn to navigate the world with creative resolve, even defiance, searching for an identity that includes their disabilities rather than spites them. His poems scrape our nerves; they test and undermine poetic forms, challenging our own sensibilities in the process.
- Author BiographyAdam Pottles first book, a volume of poetry, Beautiful Mutants, was published in 2011 by Caitlin Press and was subsequently shortlisted for two Saskatchewan Book Awards and the Acorn-Plantos Peoples Poetry Award, and was longlisted for the ReLit Poetry Prize. Born in Kamloops and raised in Ashcroft, Kitimat and Prince George, BC, Adam now lives in Saskatoon, where he is pursuing a doctoral degree in English literature.
