“Go figure. Chris Bose does a skull massage with his poetry on an audience. A reading of A Moon Made of Copper (Kegedonce Press, 2014) will provide a tingling sensation. Definitely a rude boy is he though also excruciatingly vulnerable in a way. Sure it is a bunch of poems written as he traversed Canada. Sure it is gut rhetoric. Finest and fiery wordings tell of wanderings in yet another creative territory of his multi-artistic versatile expression in art, music, literature, and film.”
—Marie Annharte Baker on A Moon Made of Copper for All Lit Up.
“I’ve been waiting for a collection like A Moon Made of Copper for over half my life now–and Chris Bose delivers it with an almighty roar. Reminiscent of Patrick Lane, Joseph Dandurand, Chrystos and Bukowski, this collection is brutal, bloody and brilliant. Chris Bose is one of my all time inspirations. What a ferociously gorgeous roar! WOW!”
–Richard Van Camp, author of Angel Wing Splash Pattern
“In A Moon Made of Copper, Bose ‘untangles [himself] from umbilical tombs’ to reveal what it takes as a First Nations person to survive the unrelenting human conditions of Aboriginals [sic] in this country. His poetic expression untangles the pain, loss and recovery expressed boldly through this volume of poetry. To read this, is to know that journey.”
