Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

Jamaica Farm, Foster, Quebec

Purchased in 1945, Jamaica Farm was Glassco's second home in Quebec's Eastern Townships. The poet and his friend Graeme Taylor lived alone in its yellow farmhouse (then white) until 1956, when they were joined by 'housekeeper' Elma Koolmer. Taylor died the following year. In 1963, Glassco and Elma were married.

The couple lived in the farmhouse until 1965, when Glassco built a new home for Elma on the land.
