In Review: Bit Parts for Fools

Bit Parts

Bit Parts for Fools

While we’re talking about books (and we are, aren’t we?), I had the opportunity to review Peter Richardson’s poetry collection Bit Parts for Fools, new from Goose Lane Editions’ imprint Icehouse Press.

Bit Parts is a nuanced piece of work. Here’s a teaser, as printed in the Telegraph-Journal.

“It is a rare act that features a disillusioned midwife, an army unit stranded in 1942, and silent film star Harold Lloyd. Yet such an act is Bit Parts for Fools, the fourth collection of poetry from Gatineau, Quebec writer Peter Richardson. Bit Parts brings together immersive detail and tongue-in-cheek narration to stage a cabaret of connection and loss.”

Happy reading.
