Precipitous Signs: A Rain Journal by Leanne Boschman (Leaf Press $16.95)
What is appropriate dress for a Prince Rupert poetess? One made of kelp, of course. Leanne Boschman is wearing one in her author photograph for Precipitous Signs: A Rain Journal, a skilled and humorous book sodden with coastal downpour. Especially worthwhile are the poem/stories taken from newspaper accounts of Rupert in the twenties; the whores, the school marms, bachelors and colonial bigwigs. Through it all, the scent of dampness. 978-0-9788379-9-0
