[From Series Three The Channel Shore]
Charles Bruce was born in Port Shoreham, Nova Scotia, in 1906, and nostalgia for the fishing communities of his native province colour both his poetry and his prose. Educated at Mount Allison University, he became a journalist after graduation. In 1945 he was appointed head of the Canadian Press Bureau in Toronto. Bruce’s books of verse include Tomorrow’s Tide (1932) and The Mulgrave Road (1957), which won the Governor General’s Award. He has written two novels: The Channel Shore (1954), and The Township of Time (1959).
