Summer in Furnished Rooms
by Marc Plourde
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.
