Overview

In his latest collection of poetry, Dominic Albanese - dubbed the colloquial, spartan poet of a generation - unleashes his wit and wisdom on the world around us. Everything from politics to political correctness, late nights to fire ants, gets caught in his visionary cross-hairs. These are poems that make you smile, make you scream, make you weep, then make you smile yet again.

Reviews

There's a certain synchronicity in receiving Dominic Albaneses's new book, Poets and Jugglers, just as the earth settled down after the two biggest quakes in thirty years. One ought to tremble and shake when reading these poems, they are testament to a life lived, sometimes with regret, but mostly with the innocent wonder of the vagaries dealt to him and his fellow man. As he so succinctly states: ...I have lived long enough to have lived enough to write it down... This is the thread that weaves memories, regrets, and lost loves and anchors them with double stitches to the small pleasures he revels in: ...you ain't seen nothing like blueberry yogurt. I shouldn't have been surprised. If nothing else, I have learned that Dominic does not hold back. He is unafraid of tears, anger, disgust and, most wonderfully, the joy of love. After one has digested the revelations, chewed and swallowed, one can only wonder at the machinations of a life well lived, and as he states at the end of one perfect rant: what the hell were they thinking. Poets and Jugglers ... a most amazing book. -- Christina Quinn, author of Riding Bareback Backwards He's a trickster with a monkey wrench for a pen. He leaves his words bolted together, covered in grease, but I'll be damned if it doesn't get your engine purring. -- Alicia Young, author of Hell on Heels Dominic Albanese gives back to poetry its spoken voice - raw, funny, immediate, provoking. It's political poetry at its best, in the tightest sense of the term. Ginsberg would have given him a big, long hug. -- Seb Doubinsky, author of Missing Signal
