Dead Cars in Managua

Stuart Ross’ sixth poetry collection is both an experimental departure for Ross and an offering of some of his most accurate surrealistic observations to date. Gathering into one volume three discrete poetry projects – an absurdist Baedeker of image-driven prose poems about Managua accompanied by his original photos of decomposing cars, a formally various sequence of personal, narrative poems about the claustrophobic spaces and amorphous moods of hospitals, and a selection of cubist and abstract poems where Ross shows his experimental New York School cards like never before – all of the poems in this book are touched by Ross’s unique ability to dissolve our common-sense understanding of the world, and then distill a more potent truth from the remains of sense and reason.


Dead Cars in Managua has been short-listed for the 2009 ReLit Awards.
