Review: Year End at The Telegram

January 10, 2013

The Telegram, St. John’s daily newspaper, name checks yours truly and Whiteout in its year-end roundup. Thanks again to Chad Pelley, a big supporter of my work.

To conclude, I’ll point out that, numerically speaking, 2012 has been a year of poetry for our province. Normally we see works of fiction and non-fiction rolling out of here by the barrel, but this year it’s been a steady supply of poetry, and among them, new works from two of my favourite poets: “Whiteout” by George Murray, and “Perfection,” by Patrick Warner. Both poets tackle the sorts of fleeting thoughts we all have, but they have a gifted knack for making the potency of a fleeting thought or observation explode with meaning. You needn’t be a poetry scholar to enjoy their work.
