Summer in Furnished Rooms
Marc Plourde


Price: $20.00

Publication Date: April 6, 2024


Summer in Furnished Rooms reflects on the passage of time and breathes new life into people and places that disappeared long ago. From Gregorio Fuentes, skipper on Ernest Hemingway’s boat and inspiration for The Old Man and the Sea, to toucans and paradise tanagers undulating in waves of colour on a Colombian wildlife preserve, to the old red-brick Empire Theatre on Ogilvy Street and the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night, showing there in ’64, Marc Plourde invokes a life’s experience in resonant narrative verse.

“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
