Paul Gallant Shares His Favourite Read from our #GiftAtlantic Collection
My island’s the house I sleep in at night
Island Studies Press
Laurie Brinklow, who has done so much to advance literature on PEI and to deeply examine what it means to be an islander, always proceeds with the greatest amount of heart mixed in with her extraordinary curiosity and smarts. With her poetry collection, My island’s the house I sleep in at night, she gives a compelling demonstration of these special powers, inviting us lucky readers into her encounters with intelligent, impassioned islanders from near and far, by way of her limber verse.
She doesn’t stop at mere introductions, of course. Brinklow finds what’s unique in every exchange, whether it’s in Newfoundland or Tasmania, and in every moment. And then, through her rich imagination, she makes it her own. And ours.
Paul Gallant has a novel in our #GiftAtlantic collection: Still More Stubborn Stars.
