Rewind: Reframing Community with Ian Williams
This week, in celebration of Black History Month, we are coming back to one of our favourite interviews with poet, essayist, and novelist Ian Williams, whose brain we really connected with. His book of essays, Disorientation: Being Black in the World, is thought-provoking and beautiful — all the things a book of essays should be.
Ian Williams is the author of six books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. His latest book, Disorientation, considers the impact of racial encounters on ordinary people. His novel Reproduction won the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and was published in Canada, the US, the UK, and Italy. His poetry collection Word Problems converts the ethical and political issues of our time into math and grammar problems. It won the Raymond Souster award.
