In a recent review of Gay Geddes' newest collection of poetry, M.A.C. Farrant, writing for The Vancouver Sun, lauds the poems' beauty and strength.
Farrant writes, "Likewise, the poems in Geddes book are axe-like in their effect, unflinching in intent, and filled with hard-to-bear details. Theres no escaping into metaphor; the poems are as direct and as unforgiving as a bitter wind. Theyre truth-telling, bearing witness to the perilous zones, events that can, in a flash, shatter a persons or a countrys comfort and memory. Neither are the poems quiet or purely contemplative; theres not a tender epistle in the bunch. And yet, with their emotional impact, they achieve a desperate beauty."
