Nowhere Fast offers a view of a world where fools rush in only to be baffled by ordinary dramas-of sexuality and gender, of family, of death and dying. By turns rueful, sardonic and tender, these narratives are overseen by a joyous mockery which reveals to us what Allen Ginsberg once called our quintessential "jerkhood"-to be living in a realm where satisfaction is denied and expectations are frustrated-the heart and soul of the absurd. In sixty exquisite prose poems, memory, dream and fantasy take turns animating the many identities of the "I" in a dark comedy of manners where the surreal underscores our eternal condition. In turns jocular and menacing, masculine and vulnerable, bawdy and rueful, Nowhere Fast marks the debut collection of a poet it seems we've always been waiting for.
