August 2010

“In [Savage Gods, Silver Ghosts], Boyanowsky offers a charming memoir that traces his relationship with ‘my dear and great friend’ [Ted Hughes]...This is a small book that pays tribute to a large man. It is the literary equivalent of a good day on the water when the line between fly fishing and poetry vanishes.”

“At first glance this seems like a book about fishing...But it is also a book about a remarkable friendship between British poet laureate Hughes...and SFU criminologist and author Ehor Boyanowsky, and about the passion they shared to save threatened environments.”

“Boyanowsky’s descriptions of Hughes’s numerous fishing expeditions (and poetry readings) in B.C. give a quick but insightful picture of the poet…a generally illuminating look at an unusual friendship.”
