Summer in Furnished Rooms
by Marc Plourde


Price: $20.00

Publication Date: April 6, 2024



From the age of seventeen, Marc Plourde has preferred to recount his experiences through poetry. His new collection, Summer in Furnished Rooms, tunnels into fifty-five years of life, retrieving episodes that may seem like fiction when viewed from the distance of time. From toucans and paradise tanagers undulating in waves of colour on a Colombia wildlife preserve, to Franz Kafka and a dog named Anonymous crossing the Charles Bridge in Prague, to a tourist’s quest for diamonds in the ports of Saint Lucia and Saint Martin, moments and people almost lost to time are brought to light once more in this superb collection.

“Marc Plourde is an honest poet whose poems, often homages to the Montreal of the 60s and 70s, deserve to be taken seriously.”

— Norm Sibum, author of Gardens of the Interregnum
