POETRY / Canadian / General

Stuart Ross's eighth collection delivers a gallery of emotionally charged poetry experiments along with a series of philosoph¬ical meditations on the aesthetically contrived and sometimes downright quirky processes followed to generate the poems in this book. A Hamburger in a Gallery provides an utterly distinc¬tive experience of the relationship between the finished poem and the process that informed its creation.

Stuart Ross is one of the foremost writers of surrealist verse in Canada and one of the funniest poets. He lives in Toronto.

"Ross' poetics shift from the surreal to the straightforward, from the concrete to the downright meditative and philosophical, as well as through a strange humour, self-aware and even ironic sadness, and sense of deep loss that permeate much of the collection. 'I stagger in my living room,' he writes, to open the poem 'IN A FOREST OF WHISPERS,' 'wedged between the piano keys / You could go cryogenic / outside your own borders [.]'" – rob mclennan's blog, June 2015

'There's no other poet like Ross in North America: one who drinks deep from the leaping, skittering invention of early surrealists like Benjamin Peret but delivers it with the croaky conviction of a Jewish Captain Beefheart.' Brian Joseph Davis, Eye Weekly
