Overview

A Peck Of Pickled Poems by Jeff Callaway

"It is my personal opinion that Burroughs, Kerouac & Rimbaud never died. A highly advanced alien civilization abducted them, extracted their DNA, & genetically engineered Texcellent Rebel. His first collection of poems, "Party Fouls", is a harrowing road-trip through the fragmented Texas psyche of an artist who has truly survived a "season in hell". Texcellent Rebel's "graduate degree" in poetry was earned in the bloodcurdling corridors of Huntsville State Prison. Like Jack Henry Abbott, Paul Verlaine & other "outsider artists" before him - Texcellent Rebel has brought his "prison ink lessons" and a life spent-on-the-margins into gut-wrenching redemptive cinematic glory. I don't read poetry. And I read Texcellent Rebel's electric collection in one sitting." -C.M. Talkington
