"Bread, Wine and Salt is Alden Nowlan's sixth book of poetry and his first in five years. It is also his finest, containing 62 poems of a rare variety and richness. Known primarily as a poet of the New Brunswick countryside, Nowlan now turns to the city and to politics and history for his subjects. He has been called an "ironist": whether he is writing of a Saint John slum, a smal-town revival meeting or the performances of Pearson and Diefenbaker, his eye detects the inescapable andoften hilarious irony in every situation. But he is also a highly personal poet, a poet of childhood, loneliness and memory. The most moving poems in Bread, Wime and Salt are concerned with the isolation of every human being , in love and in the face of death." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped lightly spine- and edge-sunned dustjacket. Signed with inscription to the late Bruce Armstrong, "For my dear friend Bruce with love, Alden Nowlan".

Laugher p 422.

Nowlan's fifth book.

"Not since Edwin Arlington Robinson gave us 'Tilbury Town' and Robert Frost fashioned his portraits and insights of the New England hills, has a poet managed to come as close as has Alden Nowlan to country people and to country things. He writes of them with wit and love, and at times with honest hatred; and his compassion is always reinforced with understanding.

His 'country' is the town of Hartland and environs, or roughly central New Brunswick. Curiously enough, he is not a native son but a Nova Scotian, Windsor-born in 1933. However, he has lived at Hartland since 1952 and has made it his own.

In this new volume he shows that he has been able to advance to a new tightness, a new directness, both in the material and in the verse line. In addition, the personal involvement is ever more closely felt than before, the dramatic note intensified. We are reading here a poet who is moving into maturity." - from the dust jacket.

NOWLAN, Alden. Bread, Wine and Salt. Toronto / Vancouver : Clarke, Irwin & Company Limited, 1967. First Edition. Pp (10),3-74,(2). 8vo, light blue-grey cloth, gilt letterig to spine. Laugher p.422. "Bread, Wine and Salt is Alden Nowlan's sixth book of poetry and his first in five years. It is also his finest, containing 62 poems of a rare variety and richness. Known primarily as a poet of the New Brunswick countryside, Nowlan now turns to the city and to politics and history for his subjects. He has been called an "ironist": whether he is writing of a Saint John slum, a smal-town revival meeting or the performances of Pearson and Diefenbaker, his eye detects the inescapable and often hilarious irony in every situation. But he is also a highly personal poet, a poet of childhood, loneliness and memory. The most moving poems in Bread, Wime and Salt are concerned with the isolation of every human being, in love and in the face of death." (from the dj). Tape marks to endpapers, penned gift inscription, else very good in nicked, unclipped dustjacket, with Governor-General's Award wraparound band. Signed without inscription by Alden Nowlan. 150.00

NOWLAN, Alden. Various Persons Named Kevin O'Brien: A fictional memoir. Toronto / Vancouver : Clarke Irwin & Company Limited, 1973. Pp (12),1-143,(5).First Printing. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Alden Albert No wlan (b. January 25, 1933, Stanley, Nova Scotia – d. June 27, 1983, Fredericton, New Brunswick). Laugher p. 422. "Various Persons Named Kevin O'Brien is a poignant, compassionate first novel by one of Canada's leading poets. Returning to the isolated Maritime village of his childhood, Kevin O'Brien finds himself drawn deeply into the world of his past. In the confining rural atmosphere which he haa once sought to escape, he relives the lonelinessof a boy yearning for understanding, and the desperate shyness of an intro spective youth. Impressionistic episodes are reflected vividly through the eyes of Kevin as boy, adolescent and man—his dying grandmother entertainingDeath with baway songs, vicious childhood games conceived in the warmonger ing spirit of the forties, his nonchalant seduction and quick betrayal, or the wild rebellion of his sister. Gradually, as past and present fuse, there comes a new awareness of his involvement in the closp-knit, parochial community. The richness of Alden Nowlan's expression brings to his novel the rare insight and humour that make his poetry so important. The honesty and breadth of sympathy, for which, in his short stories, he has been compared to Chekhov, are even more evident in this strong, clear portrait of the uncompromising life of his Maritime village."

"This is the second volume of columns by Alden Nowlan, first published between 1968 and Nowlan's death fifteen years later. Like the first, this volume is a selection from the hundreds of columns that appeared in the Saint John 'Telegraph-Journal'. These are less personal than those in the first volume, where Nowlan was less concerned with themedia and with politics. But always he approaches his subject as a familiar essayist, whose greatest gift is his ability to make the reader feelthat he is the only person present, the only person to whom the writer is speaking his mind." - from the dustjacket. "I have divided the essays into four sections. The first, 'How He Lost His Wife', explores the worlds of themedia and media personalities. 'Beware the New Puritan'; examines public mores and morals. On these, Nowlan often took stands that today would be considered politically incorrect. He did so because he resisted labels and wanted his readers to be stirred into examining views and values for themselves. The final sections are largely political. They contain much of his best and funniest satire. 'Our Political House is Afire' deals with the nation'sbusiness. 'Road Dancers are A-Comin'' consists mostly of a sequence in whi ch Alden vents his own frustrations with Fredericton taxis. The issues remain alive in a city where public transportation resists logic." - from Gibbs's introduction. Name inked to both endpapers, else very good in crisp dustjacket. 125.00

Not in Laugher. Alden Nowlan is one of C anada's most beloved and enduring poets. Born in 1933 near Windsor, Nova Scotia, he published over fifteen books of poetry, along with several volumesof stories and legends. He was awarded the Governor General's Award for Po etry and two President's Medals from the University of Western Ontario for his fiction. From 1968 until his death in 1983 Alden Nowlan was the Writer in Residence at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. The Gardensof the Wind (Thistledown, 1982) was the last volume of Nowlan's poetry to be published in his lifetime. "The Gardens of the Wind is one of six poems for voices commissioned by Robert Weaver for the CBC radio program Anthology. Besides myself, the contributors to the series were Margaret Atwood, Phyllis Gottlieb, Tom Marshall, John Newlove and Al Purdy. First broadcast in February and March of 1970, the six poems were published by the CBC in Julyof that year in a 97-page book entitled, appropriately enough, Poems for V oices. As a writer who works in many genres, in part from choice and in part from economic necessity, since I'm a writer by trade as well as a writer by vocation, I have many times been commissioned to write in prose — everything from scripts for television variety shows and situation comedies through newspaper and magazine articles to a history of Campobello Island. This was the first and only time that I have been commissioned to write a poem. Frankly, it was a discomforting experience. In the first place, l am a sprinter whose longest poems seldom run to more than one typewritten page in length — and this time I was running the marathon. For another thing, it was an entirely new and disquieting experience for me to undertake writing a poem not simply as an adventure but as a job of work. The subject I chose wasthe RCAF Flying Training School — we called it simply "the Airport" — that was perhaps the central external fact of my childhood world and which has pervaded the borderlands of my imagination ever since. Ours was a rural settlemment, with a population of at most thirty families living along eight or ten miles of dirt road. In the house in which I lived while growing up wehad no central heating, no electtricity (which meant no refrigeration), no indoor plumbing and no telephone. My father never learned to drive a car. Although I was born in 1933, I never once talked on a telephone (or tasted a hamburger!) until I was nineteen. Then — it must have been in 1940 — theybegan to build the Airport, and soon the sky was filled with little yellow Biplanes called Fleets, and everywhere we looked there were airmen, hundre ds of them, in wedge caps and blue uniforms. In the depths of my imagination, the hangar at the Airport is still the largest building in the world (just as I still use the sixty-foot-high smokestack at our local sawmill as a unit of length; when I read of a structure being three hundred feet high, Ican't help but think of it — even if it is a castle tower in France — as b eing five times as high as the smokestack on the Ketepasa Creek, N.S., sawmill of my childhood)." - from Nowlan's Introduction.

He wrote of country life as a countryman; hewas one with the osciety he depicted even as his imagination set him apart . His 'Early Poems' speak out of a secure sense of place with force, delicacy, and great moral discrimination." - from the dustjacket.

(6),[vii]-xviii,[1]-357,(1), + 16 pp plates. Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, grey cloth with metallic red letteringto spine. "George Nowlan has been described as the quintessential Canadian politician, a central figure in Ottawa for fifteen years but always closel y tied to the Maritime region from which he came. In 1925, at the age of twenty-seven, Nowlan was elected as a Conservative to represent Kings County in the provincial legislature. He served two terms there, supporting a Maritime Rights platform and dealing with the perennial Nova Scotian problems of coal, apples, and patronage. Defeated along with his aprty in 1933, he stayed active in the party administration at the local, provincial, and eventually federal levels. In 1948 he fought the first of three spectacular elections to capture the federal riding of Digby-Annapolis-Kings, which he continued to hold for the rest of his career. Once in Ottawa, Nowlan developed a sophisticated and efficient constituency organization whcih stayed with him throughout his political career. He quickly established himself as spokesman for Maritime interests in the House of Commons, and gained an enviablereputation as an orator, as a mediator bewteen conflicting interests, and as a popular member of committees. He served four years as president of theProgressive Conservative Party Association. Although identified with Drew and the 'old guard', Nowlan was appointed minister of national revenue after Diefenbaker's landslide victory in 1957. He sat on the Treasury Board, coped with the Henderson and Coyne affairs, and was responsible to the House for the CBC during the Radio-Canada strike, one of the most difficult periods in the history of public broadcasting in Canada. In 1962 he was given the powerful finance portfolio, only to find himself without a budget in the final tumultuous months of the Diefenbaker government. Personally re-elected with a bare majority in the general Conservative defeat in 1963, NOwlan ended his political career in opposition, and died 'in harness' two years later. In preparing this political biography, Margaret Conrad has had full access to Nowlan's voluminous private papers. From them she has evoked the gregarious and colourful personality of a shrewd and purposeful politician whose forty-year career serves as a case study in both regionalism and national Conservative politics." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. Signed and inscribed by Conrad on the title page. Also inscribed by two of Nowlan's children -- Clara Nowlan Jefferson and John Patrick Nowlan -- on the title page, and by former Deputy Prime Minister (under Mulroney) Don Mazankowski, on the half-title. 40.00
