Slow War

CUE alumnus and former instructor Mr. Benjamin Hertwig was just nominated for this year’s Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry in English. Mr. Hertwig’s book, Slow War, is a sequence of poems recounting his experience before, during, and after his military service in Afghanistan several years ago. Slow War is an extremly powerful, haunting, and brilliant work of both art and life. You can see the Governor General’s award nominees here: http://ggbooks.ca. Congratulations, Benjamin! We hope to congratulate you again when the winner is announced later this year.
