An Interview with Sandra Djwa

Sandra Djwa was interviewed by Michael Enright on CBC's Sunday Edition to discuss her new book, Journey With No Maps: A Life of P.K. Page. This is the first biography of Page, a twentieth-century Canadian poet and artist.

Journey With No Maps: A Life of P.K. Page by Sandra Djwa
The following is an excerpt of the book's description from publisher McGill-Queen's University Press:

"Journey with No Maps reads like a novel, drawing on the poet's voice from interviews, diaries, letters, and writings as well as the voices of her contemporaries. With the vividness of a work of fiction and the thoroughness of scholarly dedication, Djwa illustrates the complexities of Page's private experience while also documenting her public emergence as an internationally known poet. It is both the captivating story of a remarkable woman and a major contribution to the study of Canada's literary and artistic history."
