Halifax poet matt robinson will be reading from his NEWLY RELEASED 4th poetry collection, Against the Hard Angle (ECW Press, April 2010), as well as from his recently released limited edition chapbook (published by Greenboathouse Press in Fall 2009) at The Biscuit Eater Cafe & Bookseller in Mahone Bay, NS on WEDNESDAY, MAY 19th, 2010.  


Things get underway at 7:30pm; admission is — of course — FREE. Copies of Against the Hard Angle, matt’s previous collections, some limited edition broadsides (produced by Gaspereau Press), and chapbook copies, will be available for purchase.


Here’s what people are saying in the early REVIEWS of Against the Hard Angle:

There’s a fierceness to these poems; a confidently wild use of language. The poems pop off the page with the same fervour in which Robinson has written them.

This fourth collection from Halifax-based Robinson is divided into two sections, “What the Rest of Us Would Call Falling” and “Toeing the Slack-Roped Narrows.” … The metaphors (tools, the kitchen sink, utensils, spoiled milk and so on) hint at a house divided, a measure of a relationship’s end … The second half livens the book with a series of lyric poems on reconciling with home, landmarks such as the bridges, Public Gardens, grain elevators, and particularly the organized chaos we all live with in our city.
