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."
