From the back cover
In his biotext, which combines personal experience with textual encounters and poetic observations, Dennis Cooley, one of Canada's most distinctive prairie voices, gives a literary account of his travels in North America and Europe where he has frequently visited and worked both as a writer and a critic. At the centre of this life writing is a lyrical journal which the poet designed when he was guest professor at the University of Trier in the summer of 1990.
