The Outer Harbour PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Outer Harbour free pdf Wayde Compton's debut story collection is imbued with the color of speculative fiction- one strand of stories follows the emergence of a volcanic island, which alternatively becomes the site of a radical Native peoples' occupation, a real-estate development, and finally a detention center for illegal immigrants. Moving from 2001 through to 2025, "The Outer Harbour" is at once a history book and a cautionary tale of the future, condensing and confounding our preconceived ideas around race, migration, gentrification, and home.Wayde Compton is the author of three poetry collections. He is director of the Writer's Studio at Simon Fraser University.
