Poetry. Art. The 160 pages of CLEAN SAILS were wrested from dozens of typewriters, some of them hand-modified, through countless thousands of hours of typing over the past half-decade, and informed by Gustave Morin's quarter-century of investigation into the (im)possibilities of concrete poetry. "This is one hell of a ride you won't want to miss."—Derek Pell
Gustave Morin's previous New Star title, CLEAN SAILS (2015) is the world's largest volume of typewriter poetry. The Etcetera Barbecue was published in 2006 by Book*hug. His 2003 title, A Penny Dreadful, one of the few collage novels ever to appear in Canada, is now scarce. Gustave Morin has also produced twelve short-run books and chapbooks. He lives with his gals, Jenny and Nova, in a small mid-western city on the edge of The Canada.
