Description: Cultural Mischief is collection of prose poems on the hyperbolic absurdities of multiculturalism in action. Whether digging up the midden under Greg Curnoe's house, revisiting Hiroshima, attending a dog breeders' show, or retelling the history of Quebec from the points of view of its founding nations, the Mohawks and Algonquins, Davey delivers startling vignettes at their funniest and most thoughtful. This book is delightfully -- and deceptively -- simple. It provides the reader at one and the same time the most exquisitely enjoyable bedtime reading, and a wake-up call with a better hit than the best designer espresso.

"Cultural Mischief is a doggedly raucous, downright waggish guide to off-leash culture. Davey's texts, exemplary in their ironies, modestly explode pomposity, terminal narcissism, and the discontents of 'qui a peur' multicultural paranoia. Hurrah for mischief". -- Aritha van Herk
