Texte du rabat

Don Gutteridge, in his book, The Star-Brushed Horizon, looks at his boyhood days, in the village of Point Edward, Ontario, with a sardonic and sentimental perspective. The pleasures and pains of growing up are detailed in sharp, poignant lyrics that readers will be able to relate to. The middle section of the book contains poems about his family, his friends and the joys of being a grandfather. This supremely well written volume concludes with two sections devoted to the loss of his wife, Anne, of fifty-seven years. This concluding section is tender, touching and clear-eyed in the face of monumental grief.
In, The Star-Brushed Horizon, Don Gutteridge looks at his boyhood days, in the village of Point Edward, Ontario, with a wry and nostalgic eye. Further on in the book there are poems about his family and friends, including those whom he has lost.
The poems in The Star-Brushed Horizon are a nostalgic look at the poet's childhood, its pleasures and its sorrows.
