These are measured, crafted poems
with a vernacular edge–an earthiness–that reflect Peter Richardson’s laconic worldly look at people, places, and things. Although this is his first book, Richardson’s work has been published in Descant, The Malahat Review, Poetry (Chicago), Prism International, Queen’s Quarterly, Southern Humanities Review, Wascana Review and many other publications.
It is arguably one of the swankiest debuts to appear in this country during the last year. Carmine Starnino, Montreal Gazette – Saturday, February 5, 2000
Peter Richardson was born in Norwalk, Conneticut. Following army training at Fort Benning, he left for Montreal rather than report to Fort Lewis, Seattle, where he was to ship out for combat duty. He has worked as a ski instructor, and a farm labourer in British Columbia. For the past twenty-two years he has been employed by Air Canada as a ramp worker. A part-time French-English translator, he lives in Morin Heights, Québec.
