Geist is the Canadian magazine of ideas and culture—every issue brings together a sumptuous mix of fact + fiction, photography and comix, poetry, essays and reviews, and the weird and wonderful from the world of words. The Geist tone is intelligent, plain-talking, inclusive and off­beat. At the heart of our enter­prise is the imaginary coun­try that some of us inhabit from time to time, and which often has some­thing to do with Canada.
