Primitive

Paperback : 9780889104051, 56 pages, January 1991

Published in 1991, when Gil Adamson was in her 20s, by Coach House Press, Primitive explores the perils of family, the freedom of the road ... -à sex, cars and lack of sleep. And lizards. 'The gaze is cinematic, precisely intimate yet distant all at once. It is like flipping through channels. It is a fim. It is not elegiac. It is not sleeping. The artefacts of the middle class are restless, their hallways and wallpaper, streets and shoes. This book is their theatre; we don't need a TV.' - Erin Moure
