A few weeks ago I had occasion to spend part of the day in Trail, so I headed up to Rossland to Café Books West in search of a copy of Almeda Glenn Miller's new book of poems, the wonderfully titled Begin With the Corners from Big Bad Wolf Press.
The young lady who took my money said, "This looks interesting."
"Yes," I replied, "and she's local!"
She studied the cover. "Really?"
I didn't have the heart to tell her Almeda and her husband used to have that bookstore when it was called Gold Rush Books.
The poems are rich and fruity and sparkle with Almeda's trademark humour coupled with intelligence.
