His enticing and graceful prose blends the raw power of a locomotive at full throttle with the tenderness of a heart- wide open. He has created for us a new genre. --Bill Andrus/In a voice reminiscent of Raymond Carvers minimalist realism, Charles Bukowskis raw journals of lifes underbelly and Alan Ginsbergs poet-political essays, Nick Masesso Jrs second book of short stories, poetry and prose is funny, insightful and heartbreaking, describing often in non-linier dreamscape narrative with the lyricism of a poet- the love and loss and the joy and angst of the fascinating and often mystifying connections of men and women in the intimacy of their daily lives. His writing style is both anti-novel and Imagist. He fragments and distorts the experience of characters, forcing the reader to construct the reality of the story from a disordered narrative, stressing economy of language- writing free, with precision of imagery and clear, sharp language and clarity of expression with precise visual images in musical phrase.
