Not yet rated | write a review

Jack is comprised of poems that reconsider the method in which the desperate periphery manage the minutiae of existence. Set against the backdrop of a distilled urban landscape, the speakers in Jack find themselves lost in the bars, bottles and back alleys of their narratives. The result is a dark, acerbic, honest, and humourous collection that challenges not only the manner in which its speakers confront the mundane, but the traditions of poetry that have done the same.
