Bertrand Bickersteths debut poetry collection explores what it means to be black and Albertan through a variety of prisms: historical, biographical, and essentially, geographical.

The Response of Weeds offers a much-needed window on often overlooked contributions to the provinces character and provides personal perspectives on the question of black identity on the prairies.

Through these rousing and evocative poems, Bickersteth uses language to call up the contours of the land itself, land that is at once mesmerizing as it is dismissively effacing.

Such is black identity here on this paradoxical land, too.
