Marc Plourde

Cormorant Books

“UNPREPARED FOR it, you fall – / hear yourself crack – into old age.” This typically sharp observation attests to the focus on aging and memory that wends through the later poems of Marc Plourde. A prodigy in his early twenties, Plourde published one poetry collection, The White Magnet, and a collection of stories, The Spark Plug Thief, following which he ceased writing for two decades. Cormorant Books now presents a welcome single-volume edition containing selected early poems, plus poems appearing in book form for the first time.
