Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Dischell (Good Hope Road, LJ 12/92) establishes his landscapes, interior and exterior, early in his new collection. A series of poems called "Evening" paces the wandering through streets and avenues, houses, shops, and scenic niches. With lyric and narrative poems Dischell shows a wry perspective, an offbeat wit and sensitivity. "When I find a pair of underpants on the sidewalk,/ Women's or men's, I know there's a story behind them." The immediacy of such a response, the need to react, generates the passion in these poems. If Dischell is sad, he has a sad story; if lonely, he has a story of a lonely soul. This assortment of moods elicits a wide range of stories and meditations. Like the fisherfolk, "not long ago" the poet's work "was glamorous./ Something heroic about the netting of fish./ And girls in halter tops would crowd around/ and pictures would be taken." Dischell's own poetry-photographs of the end of the century turn out sharp and honest. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
A recently met the author in a tiny pub in a skinny alley in the bowels of Paris (that would be B** C**ls, Stu). He was very keen/proud of his next compilation Backwards Days, so I am looking forward to it. He was slightly hammered but I could tell from the dazzleing sparkle in his eyes - this man is a poet - I'll bet the house on that! I just bought E&A and its great.

Poetry is brilliant...and this man teaches as he writes...wonderfully. I highly reccomend any of his work. From meeting him you'd almost never expect these words that flow from his pen. Simply splendid.
