A recommended reading list from Diane Tucker, whose new release is NOSTALGIA FOR MOVING PARTS:
My generation of poets in the fair city of my birth have spent decades now chronicling lives in this scrappy little port town that, in the 1980’s, suddenly decided it needed to appear “world class” for some reason. Go figure. But the poets who have lived and written here for decades know there’s infinitely more to Vancouver, thank goodness, than microbreweries and Lululemon.
I begin the list with two excellent books that would provide a perfect context in which to read the poetry collections that follow.
