About this book

New edition of Michael Turner's seminal 1995 poetry collection, including a new essay by the author.

When Michael Turner's Kingsway was published in 1995, critics and readers were either effusive in their praise or confounded by the book's unwillingness to adhere to traditional poetry structures. In this collection of linked poems that evolve around Kingsway, Vancouver's oldest thoroughfare that cuts diagonally across the city, the single-stanza poems approximate city blocks, as diverse and complicated as the neighbourhoods Kingsway traverses; in this way, Kingsway is neither a "street" nor an "avenue" but a "way"of thinking about cities and people and different points of view. Kingsway is a place to get lost, to lose oneself; a starting point and a destination.

This new edition, published on the 20th anniversary of the book's first publication, includes a new essay and photographs by the author.
