Tiny, Frantic, Stronger
Winner: 2007 P. K. Page Founders' Award Winner: 2008 Great Canadian Literary Hunt Finalist: 2008 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award In Tiny, Frantic, Stronger, Jeff Latosik considers states of durability and longevity in an age of ephemeral mores and instant gratification. Probing the pressure points where notions of physical, psychological, and technological strength continually threaten to erupt into their opposites, these poems ask which aspects of our daily lives might actually last beyond the here and now, beyond their own inherent limitations of time, person, and place.
