This is a collection of poems Marty Gervais has written since his appointment as Windsor Ontario’s first Poet Laureate in 2011. As Susan McMaster, an Ottawa writer and past president of the League of Canadian Poets, says, “These rich stories of Windsor, its history and inhabitants, are told in a plain, inviting voice that distills them to their essence, concisely and precisely but with the grace and allusion of poetry. Drama, humour, secrets, or surprise — Marty Gervais is a master of the unexpected starting angle and resonant ending. Personal and historical, harrowing and laugh-out-loud, these poems are entirely seductive.”
