About this title

Synopsis:

Eloquent, poignant and witty, Garry Gottfriedson’s new collection of poetry, Whiskey Bullets, approaches an old genre with a new flare that will challenge your expectations of cowboy poetry. This edgy collection explores themes of duality that exist in the parallel worlds of cowboys and Indians. Often satirical, Whiskey Bullets is a testament to adaptability, turning tragedy into humour and pain into passion. It speaks to the unique experience of growing up aboriginal, on the Tk’emlups Reserve (Secwepemc) near Kamloops, with strong First Nation values and traditions, while at the same time immersed in the cowboy and ranching culture of the interior of BC. Shattering the cowboy’s code of ethics he unveils hidden truths, unspoken and often ignored, bringing to the fore inescapable issues of gender, sexuality, race and politics, infused with aboriginal attitude. Form and content are carefully conceived to celebrate the distinctive aboriginal individuality, the "shape-shifting" attitudes that are required when one lives simultaneously in two cultures—Secwepemc and white—and their two languages. Candid and challenging, Whiskey Bullets is thought-provoking and engaging.

"Heartbreakingly honest, clever and tough, Garry Gottfriedson’s poetry will move your heart and spirit forever... "

— Richard Van Camp
