The Face of Jack Munro
by Tom Wayman
Wayman's tenth book of poems.
Book DescriptionThe poems collected in The Face of Jack Munro may be set on the Canadian Prairies, in the Kootenay region of southeastern BC, or in Vancouver during the 1983 Solidarity public sector general strike. But the humour, concern for the individual, and biting social commentary found throughout this collection are exactly what readers of Tom Wayman have learned to expect.
"If we gave Wayman a chance to change the world, I think it would be safe in his hands. He came out of the radical sixties a radical, though I think it's more accurate and less type-casting to call him a man of common sense. The social consciousness, hatred of inequality, is the bones. So is the vision."
-Stan Draglund, Canadian Literature
