Over the course of a lifetime, we all experience catch-of-breath
moments that stir exquisite awareness of life’s transience. Such fleeting
moments we share with poet Christian McPherson and his space-suited
avatar negotiating bumpy terrain. In this collection the meandering,
often self-deprecating poet considers and records moments of truth and
insight common to us all as he registers his joys and regrets, and raises
rants in postured outrage. A refreshing and often humorous honesty
prevails. As the dedication promises, these poems are for those who go
to a job every day but dream of something more. McPherson delivers.
Christian McPherson is a poet and novelist. He lives in Ottawa
with his wife and their two kids. He has written a bunch of books
including, The Cube People, Saving Her, and My Life in Pictures. If he
isn’t out walking his dogs, driving his son to hockey practice or his
daughter to cheerleading, he is usually sneaking off to the movies.
