Description

“This Could Be Anywhere” describes experiences of places, landscapes, and encounters that do not seem to respond to our natural and spontaneous interest in them. The poetry collection visits various places - Natashquan, Vietnam, Montreal - and seeks to bring out their common nature. We read the poems with the impression that this could be anywhere. Author Maude Smith Gagnon displays a lovely grasp of language through well-crafted narrative touches. In a spare, minimalist form she pays homage to the intensity of being. Bit by bit her words infuse memory and absence, welcoming the most seemingly insignificant events in the world as the beginning of great things.
