Overview


David McGimpsey's Dogboy picks up and develops the adventure begun in his last collection, the critically acclaimed Lardcake. These strongly- voiced, characteristically funny poems engage and interrogate contemporary popular culture and wittily establish the province of the loser.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“David McGimpsey's poetry readings come off as stand-up routines, though it is hard to imagine more laughter in a comedy club . . . Poetry hasn't been this much fun in a long time.” —En-Route Magazine

“Wonderful . . . [P]ack[s] a punch. McGimpsey, on the whole, is witty and nearly brilliant, writing wonderfully readable poems.” —Ottawa X Press
