About the Author
Al Rempel graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Physics and a Bachelor of Education. In 2000 he attended the Victoria School of Writing after which time he began submitting poetry. He has since been published in 'The Malahat Review', 'Grain', and 'stonestone' and anthologized in '4 Poets', 'Rocksalt', 'Half in the Sun', 'The Forestry Diversity Project' and 'Down in the Valley'. He has built a cabin, chopped his own firewood and grown a garden in the bush, but now prefers to write in coffee shops and watch his daughter grow up.
Reviews
"Al Rempel uses the language of his people--or at least the rough-sleeved working stiffs of northern BC--when he captures fragments of slang like 'chuck it down the hatch....' His lyricism reaches heights that crackle with originality and echo in the brain. Rempel proves that it's the poet, not the environmentalist, who makes us ache to preserve the natural beauty of the world."
-- Arthur Joyce
