Jeff Young Delíria
|Rough Trade Books
Set against the backdrop of ‘the city’—as activation point for dreams, for visions, as a receptacle for memory, as a canvas for meaning, for art, poetry, sex, for the very stuff of life, and death, Delíria is a modern-day beat fable conjured by the master craftsman of cityscape poetics, Jeff Young. As day and night blend and blur across a city captured in its moment of brothels and cheap railway station hotels, cold beer and endless peregrinations, we are pulled further into both the place itself, deftly observed, profoundly felt, exquisitely described, and the speaker’s bruised and romantic soul.
