Synopsis: Montreal has been called the spoken word capital of North America. What is it about this city which attracts such a unique breed of performance art? This ambitious book is a look at the theory and practice of spoken word as told to the authors by 75 French and English performers, as well as New York poet John Giorno. It also documents the history of the vibrant spoken word scene in Montreal from 1960 to the present. It serves as an invaluable resource for those interested in the medium which has single-handedly revitalized poetry for a new generation. Impure makes a perfect text book for Cultural Studies and English departments across North America!

Review: "An exhaustively researched, must-have book for every Canadian Studies program." -- The Globe and Mail
