Self-Portrait as Jerry Quarry (Inland Seas) Paperback – January 1, 2002
"This is the work of a poet who veers wildly between the conversational and the lyric mode...comic...heartbreaking..." -- David Dodd Lee
"With a darting, weaving musicality, sometimes talky, sometimes demonically convoluted, these poems roar and splinter." -- Dean Young
“The monsters and heros, sometimes inseparable, that populate this book rise up, are beaten down, and rise up again in a raw and flooded mythos. With a darting, weaving musicality, sometimes talky, sometimes demonically convoluted, these poems roar and splinter. If they weren't so funny, they’d be terrifying–and they are. If they weren't so terrifying, they’d be funny–and they are. Vito Aiuto's voice comes to us from the epicenter of a concussive beauty. Get ready to be hit.” (Dean Young)
