From Our Editors

A mix of poetry and pose is blended creatively in this touching account of one man’s search for his genealogy. Waiting For Saskatchewan by author Fed Wah is an interpretation of memory and stories of a trip to China and Japan, his father’s trials as a Chinese immigrant living in a small Canadian town and his own images of childhood. Wah has an excellent ability to create lyrical passages and engaging anecdotes that explore his heritage and ancestory. Readers will find his style warm and lively.
