Ink on Paper is Brad’s second book of poetry, a compelling collection of political poems that seek to elucidate our relationships with our surroundings as well as those who surround us. Cran, former Poet Laureate for the City of Vancouver, examines urban culture and issues of social justice, told with keen awareness and a gritty poetic precision.
