Canada’s first poet laureate George Bowering is one of the best known writers and literary personalities in the nation. Poet, novelist, essayist, historian, critic and teacher, he is a prolific, irrepressible writer whose works have been published and produced in an extraordinary variety of forms. A Record of Writing traces the development of Bowering’s consciousness as a writer through four decades of work?from his early days with the Oliver Chronicle and The Ubyssey, to his involvement in the avant-garde writing community of the 1960s and 1970s, to his life as a mature writer, confident in a wide range of literary genres and activities.

Dr. Roy Miki’s unique bibliographic method proposes that the writing cannot be separated from the writer: throughout the book there are illustrations, photographs, annotations, choice excerpts from Bowering’s works, and passages from his lively correspondence, all of which illuminate and enrich the tremendously detailed bibliography.
