Overview

Kevin Quigley's new collection of poetry examines the dark crossroads where
love and terror intersect. Otherworldly horrors pervade in "Fissure" and
"Men With Tails" as maniac narrators hold court in "Meat Dumpster," "Scum
Grinder," and "Exodus." Brutality lies at the center of "Slop Hovel" and "Pulling Teeth," while other kinds of pain comprise the wistful sketches "The Last Phone Booth in L.A." and "Thyme." The whimsy of "Danish Nation"
and "Christine Again" can only hold the brightness for so long before the
depths of human depravity in "Turpentine."

As in his previous book of poems, Foggy at Night in the City, Quigley
channels his mordant obsessions ­ dark romance, psychosis, destruction, and
Los Angeles ­ into incisive, often chilling poetry and verse. Surf's Up
dives in deeper, and finds only darkness beneath the waves.
