Justin Clemens, Me'n'Me Trumpet
A piratical romp through the cosmos, in which our eponymous heroes escape, variously, a Mediterranean galley-drowning sometime in the late seventeenth century, a high-modernist drawing-room with macaroons and llamas, and a cosmic cult run by a guy with enormous hair, me ‘n’ me trumpet is a tour de force of contemporary experimental verse.
‘Clemens ups the ante in Ozpo when it comes to both topic and technique as he oxygenates traditional form for today’s readers.’ — Pam Brown in Overland
