Hotel Dieu: Letters to Madame Lee
Vallum Chapbook Series No. 5
Canadian talent CJ Pellerin freefalls into the psyche with short and urgent staccato verse, in his chapbook Hotel Dieu: Letters to Madame Lee. The chapbook is driven by a desire to end illnesses like alcoholism. The sparse language and rhythmic character of the poems serve to immerse readers fully into this world. Peppered with glimpses of Montreal and the speaker’s life outside of the hospital, these poems, built through the use of carefully chosen details, resonate with emotion.
C. J. Pellerin holds a B.A. and a B.Ed. from St. Mary’s University. He is a sailor, a carpenter and, due to life perpetuators, a muse-ician.
