Overview


Poetry. "The monsters and heroes, sometimes inseparable, that populate this book rise up, are beaten down, and rise up again in a raw and flooded mythos. With a darting, weaving musicality, sometimes talky, sometimes demonically convoluted, these poems roar and splinter. If they weren't so funny, they'd be terrifying--and they are. If they weren't so terrifying, they'd be funny--and they are. Vito Aiuto's voice comes to us from the epicenter of a concussive beauty. Get ready to be hit"--Dean Young.
