Troy Harkin suffers under the influences of Richard Brautigan, Nick Cave, and the koans of later day Dudeism. Language is both his Lego blocks of lust and monster truck of love. This is weird Canadian poetry at its best.
Troy Harkin was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He spent a good deal of his early days as a playwright and poet, performing his works in and around Toronto. His poems have been published in a variety of literary journals. He has since successfully raised three children without major incident while amassing a body of work that includes both poetry and novels.
He currently lives north of Toronto with a militia of trolls.
His novels The Dark Stars of Morning and Red Rover will be published by ChiZine Publications.
