DECLINING AMERICA is a series of long poems which depict
“america” not as a nation but as a linguistic strategy. The long
poems range from overtly political (“my american movie”) to
language-based (“software tracks”). Many of the poems were
written while traveling America (the nation) and while reading
Jean Baudrillard’s America (the book). The poems here hold
the view that the cultural imperialism of the united States has
essentially rendered Canada ‘America’ (the regime).

Advance orders welcome here.

Yay Rob! This book has been a long time cooking. I'm happy to see it become reality. Handsome cover, too. I don't have a credit card, but consider this an advance order.
