Jesse Emma and the Prime Minister: Letter from Saskatchewan (photos, memoir, fiction & poems) --- Byrna Barclay | Numéro Cinq
I've been hoarding these Letters from Saskatchewan from Byrna Barclay. This is the last until she sends me more. They are a delight just for themselves --- Byrna's quick, direct sentences are packed with charming detail and wonderful to read. But then she offers the old photos, and the memories turned into fiction, into poetry --- a deft lesson on the uses of the past, on the power of personality.
