Whylah Falls

Canada Reads 2002

Whylah Falls was defended by Nalo Hopkinson on Canada Reads 2002.

From the publisher:

"Whylah Falls is a mythic community in the heart of Black Nova Scotia, populated with larger-than-life characters: lovers, murderers and muses. George Elliott Clarke's sensuous narrative sings with the rhythm of blues and gospel, spinning a complex, absorbing tale of unrequited love, earthy wisdom, devouring corruption and racial injustice. This is a rare and beautiful collection of poetry, as much in demand twenty years after its publication as it was when first released. "
