TVOE Reviewed

The Mansfield Revue has posted a review of my first book, The Velocity of Escape, penned by Evie Christie. EC writes:

“I first read Johnstone’s work in The Invertebrate Poems (which took second prize in the CBC Poetry Competition this year), and while I was particularly impressed with these poems, I wasn’t disappointed with the poet’s earlier work. Part of Guernica’s First Poets Series, this is another slim volume, a mere 51 pages — most of them entertaining, erotic, and dangerous, and at times brute in their clean, heart-wrenching details. Johnstone’s gift is the quiet, understated handling of his characters and material, the subtle aggression and joy that will likely be overlooked by those who are used to more a bombastic approach.”
