Rhapsody in D continues to elaborate Todd Bruce’s love affair with language. One man’s gay-positive travelogue through a blurred series of Canadian landscapes, it utters, murmurs, groans, and punctuates countless moments in the classical and unconventional language of love. Subjects and objects of desire are manifold: the mundane and the magical, male and female, pedestrian and sophisticated.
"...a powerful book written by a poet completely in control of language, moving subtle quirks in ways so soft they've never been seen..."
-- The Ottawa XPress
"[This is] poetry inspired by the universal emotion of grief."
"We should thank Todd Bruce for allowing his readers to intrude into a very personal space."
"Good poetry has universal appeal, something that makes it easy for the rearder to feel a connection with the poet; great poetry makes the poet's words to become part of the reader. It is within this second classificaton that Rhapsody in D falls."
-- The Lance
Todd Bruce is the author of two poetry collections, Jiggers and Rhapsody in D, as well an illustrated chapbook, Birdman.
