Summary: The wit, playfulness, and crackle that informs Michael Harrisâ€™s acclaimed poetry surfaces in this eclectic range of essays, articles, fiction, travel pieces, and criticism. Included in Field Notes are appreciations of Irving Layton, Stephen Leacock, Jorge Luis Borges, Ted Hughes, and artist Marion Wagschal. The book also contains a provocative assessment of the rare book trade, as well as a fascinating reflection on Harrisâ€™s two decades editing VÃ©hicule Pressâ€™s Signal Editions, the poetry imprint he founded in 1980. Providing an illuminating glimpse into the workshop and creative process of a distinguished Canadian poet, this work also includes a rarely seen, youthful interview with the then-young Leonard Cohen.
