The Hard Return

    By Marcus McCann

 Buy this book! 
  Canada $16.95   



The Hard Return is a broken list of metaphors for the human heart. Or it's a troubling elegy for a disposable world. Or it's something much less serious than that.

Alternating between loving descriptions of twenty-first-century excess and awkward social situations, Marcus McCann's poems are sincere and ironic, sad and half-joking, often in the same instant.


Praise for Marcus McCann's work:

"This stunning book [Soft Where] explores the possibilities of bringing image to life, written in the language of the people and soaked in a heart of sapphire. The jury was intoxicated by this book." — Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, jury citation

"Lock up your sons." — Tony Martins, Guerilla magazine
