Above Palm Canyon and Other Places in the Mind
Road trips from Manitoba, Canada, to Palm Springs, CA, inspire these poetic meditations by Danish-born, Canadian poet, playwright, essayist and dramaturge Per K. Brask. Composed in accessible “plain speech,” this collection of 37 poems is grouped thematically into three sections, offering a poetic travelogue of the journey and its destination ("On the Road" and "Palm Springs"), along with meditations on life at home in Winnipeg, Canada ("In Between"). Readers will enjoy the poet’s personal reflections on such offbeat locales as Fargo, ND, and Missoula, MT, as well as his meditations inspired by hikes with his wife on the trails in the Sonoran Desert around Palm Springs.
