Product Description

Review

“It is an engrossing and – dare I say it – brilliantly executed narrative that gave me the sort of pleasure that Michael Ondaatje’s The Collected Works of Billy the Kid did years ago.” Noah Richler, National Post

HASH(0x9fb21c60) out of 5 stars Beutifully ugly March 4 2006
By John Hampton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This collection of poems, which was actually a study by Clarke for his novel George and Rue, Is a masterfully crafted tale of two ill fated brothers. Told from their perspective as poems they wrote, the language gets a little rough ended, but is put together beautifully. Read it again and again to truly grasp this dark portrait of the minds of two accidental killers.
