The Sad Phoenician – an advent alphabet

Robert Kroetsch entered my  life in 1979, teaching the advanced creative writing workshop at the University of Manitoba.  I heard him read The Sad Phoenician in 1979 the year it was published by Coach House Press. The reading was in St John’s College, the Chapel I like to think. The very same chapel in which I was married for the first time in 1974. But that’s a different story – believe you me.
