In this collection of engaging, emotive and thought-provoking poems Chris Parker explores the relationship between community, communication and learning. Through a series of interrelated stories he introduces a range of characters and settings, contrasting the challenges of the human search for identity, meaning and purpose with the synergy, simplicity and silence of Nature in the city.
‘Chris Parker’ s poetry speaks to the constant complexity that cannot be overcome. The City Fox is both brain-wise and mindful.’ John Sullivan. Psy. D.
Co-author, The Brain Always Wins
