The Fifth Window by Russell Thornton
How many poetry books published in Saskatchewan can claim to have gone viral?
We have been pretty surprised by the sudden and huge interest in a fairly old book! The Fifth Window by Russell Thornton, published in a small print run back in 2000, was recently the subject of a viral TikTok and now thousands of people around the globe have been looking for it. With the renewed interest we decided to reprint the book.
