In David Grubb's new collection collisions, wonders, ballyhoo and sudden light signal the way we walk a tightrope between the real and the imagined. Our human world encompasses clowns, angels, the dead, ghosts and saints, parrots and horses, the upsidedown and secret dancing, kazoo music and heart songs.

"David Grubb's voice gives a distinctive slant to his subjects. It is a poetry that subverts expectations,unsettles and moves you." — Mike Barlow

"His poems, often growing out of his work in conflict zones or areas of extreme poverty, are suffused with political accountability. Combine this with a less than conventional syntax and a talent for rendering physical qualities with authenticity and you have something special." — Tim Liardet

"David Grubb's poems sing out so lustily and irrepressibly… steady, bright, humane." — Selima Hill
