From the Back Cover:

It is Earle Birney’s immediacy and vitality which has kept him so much in rhythm with the up-beat generation of today, and it is precisely for this generation that the present volume of “selected selected” is intended: a quintessence of Birney, designed to fit both pocket-book and pocket.

The poems range from his haunting “David” to the harsh now-tempo of “Canada Case History: 1969 Version,” and “The Toronto Board of Trade Goes Abroad.” The locale is as varied as the rhythms of the poems themselves – from Canada to Chile, from Spain to Holland, from India to Japan.

Here is a book which adds a fresh dimension to the simple fact of being alive.
