Toronto launch for Dead Cars In Managua

My new book of poetry, Dead Cars in Managua, the first title in DC Book's Punchy Poetry Series, is about to be launched in Toronto. Here's the skinny:


Wednesday, May 21, 7 pm till late (readings about 8)
The Dora Keogh Pub, 141 Danforth (near Broadview)

Stuart Ross — Dead Cars in Managua (DC Books)
Jason Camlot — The Debaucher (Insomniac Press)
Catherine Graham — The Red Element (Insomniac Press)

Should be a nice time. I'll have some contraband copies of An Orphan's Song, too, if you want one.

A bit more about Dead Cars In Managua: this is a pretty unusual book for me, divided into three distinct sections. The first, "Dead Cars in Managua," is a long prose poem accompanied by photographs I took in Nicaragua in 1989 and 1996. The second, "Hospitality Suite," is a long poem in sections about hospitals and their unique world. The third, "You, a Person," is a compilation of poems I've written mostly during the Poetry Boot Camps I've led over the past couple of years.

Over and out.
