“A collection of poetry by Paul Vermeersch is more than a book, it’s an adventure,” says Jeff Dupuis. “It’s a trip to the stars and down memory lane, a voyage into the depths of pulp culture and western civilization… it has heart, wit and the dimensionality to kick the reader’s imagination into overdrive… One of the most original and talented voices in Canada.!”
