Description

Featuring psychic surfers, Shakespearian apes, vengeful dogs, and conspiratorial potatoes, this first major collection of poetry by a longtime veteran of Toronto's literary underground depicts a truly surreal world—all through the language of overheard conversation. Uproariously bleak, deceptively simple, and thoroughly danceable, the poems paint such pictures as a child born with the ears of a rabbit, a serial killer's home becoming a tourist attraction, and a hot-dog vendor awaiting the Pope at Paralysis Beach.
