BRIAN HENDERSON is the author of nine collections of poetry, including a deck of visual poem-cards. He has published articles, reviews, and poetry in major literary magazines, and he was a founding editor of Rune for its decade of existence. He’s a photographer, an occasional teacher, and the director of Wilfred Laurier University Press. His new collection, Nerve Language (Pedlar Press), is an exquisitely-crafted exploration of madness, based on memoirs which shaped Freud’s work on paranoia. Henderson lives in Kitchener ON with the love of his life, his son, daughter and step-son, and a relentlessly curious dog.
