You are about to read a book like no other. Bloody Jack is a collection about the making and unmaking of story, of poetry and of history.
Based loosely on the life of John Krafchenko, a notorious Manitoban outlaw, the poems of Bloody Jack turn fact and fiction upside down and inside out.
Dennis Cooley has added more than a dozen new poems to this revised edition and Douglas Barbour has written an introduction.
By turns earthy and earnest, soulful and sly, Bloody Jack is a rollicking, fun-filled riot of a volume by one of Canada's favourite poets. "Bloody Jack is back again, bigger, bolder, sweeter and even more outrageous." -David Arnason
