A selection of poems by the man described by the Globe & Mail as "the greatest of our poets". 'Rooms for Rent in the Outer Planets' includes three decades worth of thought-provoking work. Purdy personally made this selection, assisted by Sam Solecki. In these poems, Purdy ponders the remains of a Native village; encounters Fidel Castro in Revolutionary Square; curses a noisy cellmate in the drunk tank; and marvels at the 'combination of ballet and murder' known as hockey, all in the author's inimitable man-on-the-street style. This book is destined to become the standard Purdy poetry volume for many years to come.
