In Darrell Epp's latest collection After Hours, our hero awaits Dorothee's return, while frankensteins invade Canada. Poltergeists patrol the hollowed-out manufacturing sector. The future's a let-down; contingency plans are hastily constructed. Every moment's an apocalypse as divine grace pummels Metropolis like a blizzard of fists.


"I enjoyed these poems immensely." – William Peter Blatty, author of The Exorcist

 "Lucid, raw and honest poems, refrains that slide with grace and wit from the particular to the general, from past to present and back again, authentic and absorbing." – novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid and Little Buddha)

"If you ever get caught in the subway between stations, try to sit beside a guy like the guy who wrote these poems." – novelist David Gilmour (The Film Club, Back On Tuesday) 

 "Funny and fun to read, playful but also deadly serious…a depth of experience got at only in the best poetry." – novelist Samuel Thomas Martin (This Ramshackle Tabernacle, A Blessed Snarl)
