Skullduggery by Asa Boxer
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2011
The poems in Skullduggery have a simple warning: trust nothing. Drawing on a deepened range of forms (comic set-pieces, verse-plays, dramatic monologues) Skullduggery embraces deception as both theme and tactic. In poem after poem, encounters test the threshold of what’s real and what’s not; turns of phrase appear to say one thing, but really mean another.
