How to Have Sex in a CanoeMonday, July 23, 2018
In my Sunday NY Times I magazine I read this delightful essay called How to Have Sex in a Canoe. Here it is.
I stopped and smiled when I read Pierre Berton's 1973 quote:
"A Canadian is somebody who knows how to make love in a canoe.”
Pierre Berton is special to me because his 1985 book Vimy (many say this battle made Canada a country) was the first Canadian book I read. It took me (from our moving to Vancouver in 1975) eleven years before I touched anything by a Canadian. I have made up for lost time since. I especially adore poets George Bowering, Gerry Gilbert and Susan Musgrave.
Few in Canada might acknowledge American born William Gibson as a Canadian. I would.
