“Lizard on the Scalding Stone shows proficiency in rhythm and imagery…”
– Ottawa Citizen
“In this slim volume, Michael Latter lifts the ordinary and illuminates its conditions at a poetic height. Through understatement and the correct choice
of imagery, many of the poems become sympathetic portraits reflecting the joys and tragedies of life…the poet has carefully controlled style, with few excess words or emotions…this is a book you can identify with easily and enjoy.”
– Canadian Author and Bookman
“A poet of the future, get aquainted.”
When Mike originally submitted the manuscript for this new collection, he included a CD with recordings of himself reading all the poems in the collection along with the introduction by George Coventry. Below are audio samples from that CD; the Introduction along with the first three poems. Click on the book cover if you would like to order the book.
On Saturday, June 20th at 2:00pm at the Leacock Café in the Leacock Museum, friends, family and colleagues will join together to celebrate the life and work of Michael Latter with afternoon of poetry and music. All are welcome.
