Joseph A Dandurand’s thirteenth book of poetry, I Will Be Corrupted, is a powerful work in its depth and craft and beautiful in its simplicity and form. With raw, relentless energy, Dandurand, a member of Kwantlen First Nation on the Fraser River near Vancouver, writes honestly about his life and past: the trauma caused by colonialism, Catholicism, addiction, and trauma, as well as the healing found in cultural traditions, spirituality, fishing, and writing. I Will Be Corrupted is a mature work that finds a measure of acceptance in past injuries and mistakes but also acknowledges a complicated future. For Dandurand, ‘corruption’ is turned on its head and becomes a channel of healing.- FreeFall Magazine
Reviews of past work: "These are powerful visionary parables of suffering, redemption and retribution" --The Toronto Star "Dandurand's collection is a must for readers of Indigenous literature, settler colonial studies, Anthropocene literature, diverse futurisms, or just good poetry. SH:LAM is intense but immensely satisfying." --World Literature Today ?What makes Th?owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish truly unforgettable is in its engaging story steeped in tradition.?
