Paul Zits. Paul Zits is a poet whose work has been widely published in various literary journals, including Canadian Literature and Arc Poetry Magazine. He lives in Calgary.

"...Zits' book juxtaposes fragments of others' writing to invite readers to ponder the concept of reconstituting history when the low fog of racism attends cultural difference and shrouds events, when personal investments of witnesses to that history are so divergent, and when oral and written versions of events tell incommensurable stories."
