The Loudest Thing

The Loudest Thing is a love letter to family and the complex history of blood, to failed relationships and the magic left behind, to the dance of a happy marriage across decades, to friendship, travel, coming home. Funny, honest, and seductive—Joshua Levy finds the silver lining in even the darkest subject matter with an infectious sense of wonder. We journey with him as he visits the crooked streets of Lisbon, a kibbutz in Israel, the hollow of a guitar on a beach in Venezuela, even an alien planet. But mostly these poems brim with affection for his hometown, Montreal, and all that keeps him anchored here.
