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.
