Suggestive images, written in a language that is colloquial and above all provocative.
Heir to the best American “dirty realism”, this work is full of suggestive images, written in a language that is colloquial and above all provocative. In it, Barry Gifford recreates circumstances that range from cruelty to tenderness in a borderline, marginal world where characters are trapped by their passions and desperately try to escape their fate. The atmosphere enfolding these poems is plagued with losses and misencounters, loneliness and broken hopes. This edition includes a special notebook with twenty-five photographs by David Perry.
