The Poet is a Radio

  • Café Resonance 5175A Avenue du Parc Montréal, QC, H2V 4G3 Canada (map)

Jack Hannan launches his novel The Poet is a Radio.

The poet Li Bai has journeyed across the world and perhaps across centuries. When he comes across a bag of money in a downtown parking lot, we also meet the delinquent who lost the bag of money in the first place. The assemblage in Jack Hannan's first novel are driven by wordsmithery, trickery, and flights of such fancy--for an instant, the signal comes in clearly, and we might all step into this world where anything is possible.

Jack Hannan is the author of three books of poetry, including Some Frames, shortlisted for the A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2011. He lives in Montreal and has worked in the world of books, both as a bookseller and in publishing.
