Join At Bay Press and Octopus Books for the release of Christian McPherson's new collection of poetry, Walking on the Beaches of Temporal Candy.
On Saturday November 14th at 7pm, Christian will read from his collection in an online event hosted by Susan Johnston.
Over the course of a lifetime, we all experience catch-of-breath moments that stir exquisite awareness of life’s transience. Such fleeting moments we share with poet Christian McPherson and his space-suited avatar negotiating bumpy terrain. In this collection the meandering, often self-deprecating poet considers and records moments of truth and insight common to us all as he registers his joys and regrets, and raises rants in postured outrage. A refreshing and often humorous honesty prevails. As the dedication promises, these poems are for those who go to a job every day but dream of something more.
Ottawa's Christian McPherson is a poet and novelist whose books include The Cube People, Saving Her, and My Life in Pictures.
Walking on the Beaches of Temporal Candy is available from Octopus Books, with bookplates signed by the author.
