Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets: Selected Poems 1962-1996
Al Purdy
A 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, including poems from the Governor-General's Award-winning "The Cariboo Horses" to "Naked with Summer in Your Mouth."
Purdy personally made this selection, assisted by Sam Solecki, the editor of "Starting from Ameliasburgh: The Collected Prose of Al Purdy." In these poems, Purdy ponders the remains of a Native village; encounters Fidel Castro in Revolutionary Square; curses a noisy cellmate in the drunk tank; and marvels at the "combination of ballet and murder" known as hockey, all in the author's inimitable man-on-the-street style.
"Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets" is destined to become the standard Purdy poetry volume for many years to come.
