BeschreibungContemporary Canadian poetry got you down? Well, we'd like to prescribe a little "Hello Serotonin," the latest in mood-enhancing poetry anti-depressants. This new book of poems from Jon Paul Fiorentino operates within the constraints of what he terms 'synaptic syntax' - poetry that performs the very nature of neuronal activity from the point of view of a mood-enhanced Human Comedy, which, with a quick turn of phrase, or missing neurotransmitter, could become Human Tragedy. Filled with a witty, self-deprecating and often Andy Kaufmanesque sense of humour, "Hello Serotonin" is today's generation of pharmaceutical poetry, and will alter your perception of therapeutic poetics. Get your prescription filled today!
