We received word that T.A. Niles recently posted a very elaborate and fun review to his web site regarding Darrell Parry’s collection of poetry, Twists: Gathered Ephemera. The book has also gained some traction on Goodreads.
Sure, there was a healthy dose of sardonic humor, but what else would you expect from a guy who plays with devils? In poem after poem, there was something juicy to savor— even if you had to wait for the twist at times. Asked to sum up the collection, I might say something like, ‘It’s lemon-drop poetry: hard and grainy on your tongue, where tangy and sweet fornicate to produce spurts of ecstasy.’Reviewer T.A. Niles
