Meritage Press is delighted to announce the release of -- and a SPECIAL RELEASE OFFER for -- Complications, the second full-length poetry collection by Oakland-based poet Garrett Caples. Reflecting the moral disintegration of the post-9/11 world, Complications is an even wilder, darker, funnier exploration of poetic consciousness than its predecessor, The Garrett Caples Reader. From semiotic reportage to automatic writing, oulipian constraint to straightforward elegy, Complications is an eclectic tour de force in the service of a fundamental proposition: "surreality is real."
Praise for The Garrett Caples Reader
"a wonderful book of prose and poetry."
"a lovely piece of work all the way through."
