21 ACORN, Milton). LEMM, Richard LEMM, Richard Milton Acorn : In Love and Anger. in dj. signed
Carleton University Press, Ottawa, 1999, 1999 0886293405 / 9780886293406 
(ACORN, Milton). LEMM, Richard. Milton Acorn : In Love and Anger. (Ottawa) : Carleton University Press, (1999). First Edition. Pp [i]-xiii,(1),[1]-279,(3). Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth.

"Through archival and private sources, many previously untapped, Richard Lemm connects Acorn?s self-perpetuated image as a working-class rebel, and his peculiar brand of communism, to his employment history and experience of war. The poet's troubled relationships with family members, his wife - writer Gwendolyn MacEwan - lovers, other writers and friends, and his chronic ill-health are all explored as sources of both personal pain and inspiration."

"A fine critical biography of one of Canada's great poets." - Patrick Lane.

Milton James Rhode Acorn (b. March 30, 1923, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. – d. August 20, 1986, Charlottetown), nicknamed The People's Poet by his peers, was a Canadian poet, writer, and playwright.

Very good in dustjacket. Signed by Lemm. 30.00

ANDREWS, William. The Grand Change. Charlottetown : The Acorn Press, 2013. First Edition. Pp (4),1-192,(4). 8vo, photo-illustrated cardcovers. WilliamJohn Lloyd Andrews, born and raised on a mixed farm in Freetown, P.E.I. "William Andrews' first novel examines life in a small PEI community in the 1940s and 50s as changes, so common in the rest of the world, begin to take hold. Using a road as an allegory, he weaves a lyrical tale of simple country people, their struggles and their joys. The story is told through the eyes of a boy called Jake: he is the witness to life on the Hook Road and the events that change that life forever. The book is in some ways like a long poem: the people and the world they inhabit are richly and meticulously described, and the superb writing takes the reader to a world no one will eversee again." - from rear cover.
