Where to find Jeff Roulston online
There Goes The Neighbourhood And Other Short Stories
A collection of three brand new short stories about characters young, old and in between. They are sons, brothers and fathers; good people, but they are human, and therefore flawed and ultimately misunderstood.
Second Chances And Other Short Stories
This is a collection of three short stories, narrated by college-going and college-educated young men and women, both gifted and flawed, hopeful and hopeless; and connected by one universal theme: love.
Toronto The Good
The poems in Jeff Roulston's first chapbook Toronto The Good are descriptive, dark, angry and optimistic all at once. His lyrical, spoken word- and hip-hop-influenced style represents his Toronto upbringing and his pointed poetry lays out the best and worst of his hometown.
