Lamothe-Cadillac: His Early Life in France. Written in Linked Prose Poems in French and English. Beverly Matherne.

     What a pleasure to plunge into the heart of a page of history that breathes life rather than dust. While reading Beverly Matherne, I had the extraordinary fortune to discover the world with the eyes of Antoine Lamothe-Cadillac himself and to relish daily life from the time period that is his. Matherne’s poetry is sensual and delicious, narrative, capable of being seen and felt. Rare are writers who know how to give history such a vibrant and luminous present.
                                      Dyane Léger

 “Lamothe-Cadillac is splendid, refreshing, and original. Matherne should be congratulated.”
