Praise for David Silverberg

“This book is a time machine. With nostalgia and wit, these poems bring us to childhood shrines of forgotten manuscripts and pop culture, while forecasting the future we may face: a crossroads where each person has to decide what they stand for, and how to make themselves heard. Part celebration, part call-to-action, David Silverberg uses these pages to remind poets and readers alike: we need you now more than ever.”
—Alessandra Naccarato, winner of the Writers’ Trust RBC Bronwen Wallace Award, and of the 2017 CBC Poetry Prize

“Turning his sweet tooth into a Bluetooth connected to the future, David Silverberg explores a future where a man’s brain is one with the internet and where language is changing so fast it’s sometimes too gizzle and gronk for us to keep up. I recommend you check out all the other words David has to offer in this new collection.”
—RC Weslowski, broadcaster and Canadian poetry slam champion
