In this poetry collection, Joséphine Bacon challenges our traditional notions of culture and perception, landscape and wilderness, the limits of experience, and the nature of human being. With a surreal blend of emotions and memories, "A Tea in the Tundra / Nipishapui Nete Mushuat" portrays a complex and ever-shifting landscape of possibilities. The author passionately reveals a finely wrought sensibility, which elevates the subtle scenery of life's everyday events. The French-language edition of this book was shortlisted for the 2014 Governor General's Literary Award for poetry.
