This month I tackled most of the Canada Reads short list in reverse order of elimination. Though I still haven’t yet read Something Fierce.
14. Kenk, by Richard Poplak
(Pop Sandbox, 2010)
The graphic biography of Toronto’s Igor Kenk, told through grainy punk-style photocopied stills excerpted from filmed interviews. Poplak reveals a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of the radical environmentalist who probably stole your bike.
One of the best graphic biographies I’ve ever read.
15. Saltations, by Jennifer Still
(Thistledown Press, 2005)
