One might be looking at a game of consequences with serially switched pronouns… or a stranger-than-lifebiography where missed moves and alternatives compete with the actualite for attention. Nothing here, however, is blessed by what is commonly understood as 'finality', realised or imagined. Tripping Daylight, Peter Dent's latest collection, finds its unlikely protagonist connecting (or attempting to connect) the experiences of a 'life lived' with a welter of convenient 'truths' — known or suspected — and which may be seen as arguable every step of the way. Shared words and wisdom, occasioned by this singular work, allow both for the making of an expansive public field and the leaving of private tracks.
