About This Book
Originally published in 1998, Lynn Crosbie brought her unique voice to the forefront of Canadian poetry with this important collection of verse. Hers is a world of Shakespeare, skinheads, and centurions; and hers is a life stripped to the basics and then reconstructed with relish, every brick scrutinized meticulously.
In Queen Rat her language is urban, but her soul is universal as she explores that which makes up everything.
Featuring a new introduction by poet and musician Michael Turner.
