GHOSTLY EMBERS Gets Good Review

Review of Larry Rochelle’s GHOSTLY EMBERS: VISIONS OF TOLEDO

The colors, sounds, tastes and scents of Toledo emerge in this book of poems by a Toledo native. Here live the Peach Section, the Blue Streak edition and the Purple Gang. More than just a listing of familiar city landmarks, the poems give the reader a sensory jolt, dredging up memories of a past long submerged. On one level, for instance, food becomes a sensory language; in an instant it is 1958 and I am back in my mother’s kitchen, smelling the open-door cooking of grilled tomatoes, creamed tuna on toast and homemade soups.

For Rochelle, food “leaves the taste of memory in your bowl.” Similarly he draws on the sounds of a Midwest industrial town in the postwar years: the drone of lawnmowers, the warbling of late-summer cicadas, lunchtime factory whistles and the squeak of porch swings. To those of that generation, the images snag the past like a fisherman casting a line and reeling it back to the surface.

--by Marian Fisher, University of Toledo adjunct professor
THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO ALUMNI MAGAZINE, Winter, 2006
