Whisky Sour City

Black Moss Press (Sept. 23 2014)

Sex, love, alcohol, and pollution are on tap within these pages. Whisky Sour City is a collection of poetry written by people who have experienced both the sour and the sweet of Windsor, Ontario. The rich sense of history, community and family in this book is enticing, and the humour and sense of southwestern Ontario are welcoming. This book is a celebration, a memory, and an invitation to readers to call a toast to the unique city that is Windsor, Ontario.
