A Generous Latitude

Lenea Grace?s debut collection maps a series of relationships within a greater exploration of Canadiana, barreling through shield and crag, river and slag.A Generous Latitudeis not afraid of beer, bears, internal rhyme, David Hasselhoff, sediment, or sentiment. It does, however, eschew sliding down lampposts, CBC sitcoms, McGarrigles, and the sentimental. Taking humor in Lenea Grace?s debut collection maps a series of relationships within a greater exploration of Canadiana, barreling ...

    This is a great collection - definitely heavy on pop culture and Canada, but a lot of fun. It reminds me a lot of a good friend's poetry, and that is some high praise. ...

    I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book from the publisher. Most of us crave a published work at times that feels like we are having a conversation with a group of friends. When one thinks of those conversations, one often reflects on serious elements as well as goofy commen...

    A Generous Latitude is filled with strong imagery of relationships and overall life. I had fun reading her writing, there was such retro feel. Grace is from Canada, and I really enjoyed how that played into the poetry. But for me, my favorite part is how pop-cultural plays into these p...

    *I received this book from NetGalley in return for a honest review* This book is a fun, honest, serious, satirical book of Canadian poetry. There are so many things about these poems that are quintessentially Canadian, both that I understood, and that I didn't because it was not my ...

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to read and review it. This in no way impacts my opinions. Full review to come on Books and Ladders. Some of this really worked and some of it didn?t. It was an ode to Canada that I don?t think a lot of people who don?t...

    I received a print ARC from ECW Press as part of the Shelf Monkey program. I've always prided myself on being fairly well-versed in the deep cuts of Canadiana (considering that I'm from Northern California and don't live near a border city), but some of the references (especiall...

    RIB So she asks him why men chase women and he does not answer, cocks one eyebrow, pulls a carving knife from the drawer. Lady, it is not your heart I want but the rib you stole. Let me take what is mine. He has always been a selfish lover. There were a few gems like this on...

    I chose to request Lenea Grace's A Generous Latitude from Netgalley, as I always like discovering new poets. Whilst I liked and appreciated all of the cultural details about Grace's native Canada, and the way in which some of her prose felt quite original, the majority of the poems her...

    If you didn't know this poet was Canadian, you will as soon as you begin this collection. There were references I didn't get but you can still enjoy a work even if that's the issue, unfortunately this work fell flat and didn't work for me. ...
