About this Item
Winner of the 2015 Lansdowne Prize for Poetry.
In poems that are smart and gorgeously funny, Ariel Gordon's Stowaways careens between life as we-know-it on the Canadian prairies and the frayed yet familiar edges of what-if. What if a beluga from Churchill hooked up with a Gore-Tex-ed tourist? What if knowing Morse Code would save your bacon during the zombie apocalypse? Half survival guide, half invasive species list, these are poems that stick to your socks.
