In a Small House on the Outskirts of Heaven

"Wayman rides the waves of local history and popular concerns to produce exceptionally fine poems."
-Alan Twigg

Book Description

Tom Wayman has earned an international reputation as a work poet, anthologist and essayist. This new collection of 64 poems deals with blue-collar working conditions, labour strikes and unemployment, the hierarchy of business and its philosophy of "money above all considerations" in the workplace. Some new travel poems and a few well-chosen comments on the uses and misuses of language are included, as well as a section consisting of 'found poems' from the Vancouver telephone book.
