GROWING UP PERPENDICULAR ON THE SIDE OF A HILL

By Carl Leggo

Lynch’s Lane is a street in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, a city whose main enterprise is the making of paper. Like much of Newfoundland, Corner Brook is a hilly, hardworking town, and Carl Leggo’s poetry, while recounting his own experience of growing up in there in the 1950s and 60s, also helps define both the people and the place for the rest of us. The writing is neither sentimental nor angry, but is honest, humorous and often whimsical.
