Sunday June 17, 2001, 2 p.m. at
Octopus Books 116 Third Ave in the Glebe
Remarkable in its language and in its unsettling simplicity, Rocket Science
explores the mundane and the idiosyncratic with dazzling power
“…With canny prose, [Guance] demonstrates both the fundamental aloneness of
each of us and the miracle of civilized connection we manage moment by
moment while the inner self toils away.”- JIM BARTLEY The Globe & Mail
TELL IT SLANT
With language that is lush and startling and a shape that is disjointed and
elliptical, Tell It Slant is a brave and beautiful book.
“For all its emphasis on formal manipulation, carefully constructed images
and flights of pure imagination, the book is also extremely grounded. The
emotions it delivers are real and painfully vivid.” Maureen Phillips, Xtra!
