Musical Language:
A Spotlight on
Coach House Books
featuring Rob Benvie
and David McGimpsey

"McGimpsey’s voice is so original and subversive that he is practically re-casting the poetry mold, pushing the boundaries of literary acceptability, and doing so without a hint of pretentiousness.
— Montreal Gazette

Rob Benvie

Join us for an evening of poetry, prose and live music.

 

Rob Benvie has recorded and performed with many musical endeavours, including the rock bands Thrush Hermit, Camouflage Nights and The Dears. Sprawling yet scalpel-sharp, his acclaimed second novel, Maintenance , takes the suburbs to a geography you won’t recognize.

 

David McGimpsey’s fifth collection of poems, Li'l Bastard , was written in part as an homage to the poetic idols of his youth, John Berryman and Robert Lowell. This collection of “chubby sonnets”—sixteen-line poems organized in eight twenty-poem sequences—explore his obsessions: popular culture, love and death, aging, baseball and beer and Barnaby Jones
