Overview

Kerouac's road lasted only a few short years. Dom's has lasted a lifetime. His work is an unpretentious reflection that puts a keen perception upon that which he has done and seen. - Carter Monroe This collection brings together two of Dominic Albanese's earlier chapbooks - both out of print and difficult to find. Albanese has been dubbed the spartan, colloquial poet of a generation and these poems show that voice in full flight.

Reviews

Over the years I've heard and read countless comments from poets and readers alike regarding what they wanted from poetry. The phrase honest work from honest poets has surfaced many times over. Such a thought reeks of being a cliche. As if it's a generic concept that keeps one from having to dissect the writing in a more thorough sense. The work of Dominic Albanese could literally not be described without the word honesty. Kerouac's road lasted only a few short years. Dom's has lasted a lifetime. His work is an unpretentious reflection that puts a keen perception upon that which he has done and seen. With a Whitman-like organic approach where each line is a poem within the poem, he takes us with him as he unflinchingly traces those memories that make up the whole that is his current self. In Midway Moves we see a very reflective Albanese. A man who can remember with less pain today than he felt yesterday. Someone who molded the pieces of the past so that they now fit into a puzzle that breeds a level of contentment. A writer who understands that the nature of existence lies not in what one does, but how one perceives it. This is a book that no one will regret having read. -- Carter Monroe
