Adrift in Adulthood: Vincent Colistro Late Victorians

Vincent Colistro’s debut casts an uncanny eye towards absurdity. Late Victorians is a skilled foray into the essential and the laughable, the poems bristling with attention. Colistro skewers and exposes with blithe ease: here is adulthood, there, poetics, nearby, magic, further afield, sex and death. The collection dismantles and demands, managing to adore and flout convention both.
