THE OUTER HARBOUR
In his debut story collection, poet Wayde Compton explores the concept of place and identity in which characters and space merge to make narrative. These interconnected stories, imbued with the colour of speculative fiction, are towering in their conceits. As much as characters are revealed by what they do and say, in The Outer Harbour, places also speak, in the way that they shape us.
Wayde Compton is a Canadian poet, essayist, and novelist. Alongside fellow authors David Chariandy and Karina Vernon, Compton co-founded Commodore Books, the first Black Canadian Literary Press.
