Nine years after his last volume of poetry, Felix Cheong makes a comeback - this time, a collection of poetic outtakes and more recent writings.
B-Sides and Backslides: 1986-2018 puts together an unrelenting and honest portrait of the poet as a young man - an undergrad hung up on T.S. Eliot - through the ups and downers of career and marriage, to middle-age. It is at once an insightful mapping of his craft over 20 years and a typography of turns and returns of themes and images.
Collected here is the full-range of Felix's oevre, from odes to love to social observations, from religious musings to political satire.
Complete with liner (linear) notes documenting the periods between his four books, this anthology will offer you a rare look at a poet's growth and creative process from the inside out.
