Poet Sue Goyette on the CBC Books Podcast

Canadian poet and novelist Sue Goyette speaks on the CBC Books podcast about her new collection Ocean.

Goyette lives in Halifax and has published four books of poetry and a novel (Lures, Harper Collins), all of which have been nominated for/won prestigious awards. She also contributed poems to our first issue of Open Field.

Goyette’s new book Ocean is receiving positive attention from readers and reviewers.

For Salty Ink, reviewer Chad Pelley writes: ‘Goyette writes poetry as well as anyone alive in Canada. Her poignant, punchy poems deserve to be bound with such class and care. This collection in particular, as it’s like nothing you’ve read, and like the sea, Ocean will drag you in and steal your breathe away. This is fresh, unprecedented, cerebral, prophetic, and ultra-original poetry.’

If that sounds appealing, you can get a copy of Ocean through Gaspereau Press.
