About this product
- DescriptionA selection of poems by the man described by the Globe & Mail as the greatest of our poets . 'Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets' includes three decades worth of thought-provoking work. Purdy personally made this selection, assisted by Sam Solecki. In these poems, Purdy ponders the remains of a Native village; encounters Fidel Castro in Revolutionary Square; curses a isy cellmate in the drunk tank; and marvels at the 'combination of ballet and murder' kwn as hockey, all in the author's inimitable man-on-the-street style. This book is destined to become the standard Purdy poetry volume for many years to come.
- Author BiographyAl Purdy's down-to-earth voice populates thirty-three books, including The Cariboo Horses (1965), North of Summer (1967), Sex &Death (1973), and Piling Blood (1984).
