"I was asked to include a 'bio.' Outside my window I see the city lights and the night traffic of Lowell, where I have been living for a number of years with my wife who is a painter. Previously, we lived in Cambridge and before that New York City, etc."
This is Alfred Bouchard's first book of poems. He is a member of the Lowell Poetry Network and has read his work at the Parker Gallery of the Whistler House Museum of Art, 119 Gallery in Lowell, and other locations.
Poet Kate Hanson writes: "Alfred Bouchard's poems in The Fogg are passionate ruminations in a museum where 'no church bells ring' and 'perfection is frightening.' Bouchard extracts from the silent canvas the strange exhausted unsaid--those clouds that live between the image and the words."
