This collection spans almost five decades and contains more than two hundred poems -- poems that demonstrate the variety of Len Gasparini's themes and styles, his ironical vision, and his verse rhythms in the use of language. Together they document the development of a strong creative source in Canadian poetry.
In Toronto / it was an ordinary January day / of funerals, dentists, / and bad weather. / I shoveled dirty snow from the sidewalk. / After that, I went back indoors, / brewed some coffee, spiked it with whisky, / and read a short story by Dostoevsky.
