A Salve For Every Sore

A Salve For Every Sore
by April Bulmer

Publisher: Cormorant Books
Genre: poetry
Format: trade paperback; 84 pages
Price: $10.50

In this her first collection of poems, April Bulmer celebrates the beauty and innocence of rural rhythm and folklore. Set during the ‘30s and told from the point of view of Marie, whose father runs the general store, the work is a loose narrative describing Marie’s perception of her childhood, her family, school, members of a local Ojibway tribe,  and some of life’s more eccentric souls. In riveting and lyrical language, the characters speak of poverty, hunger, love and death.
