    “Morrison’s rock star past haunts much of his writing, but his eye for detail and his razor-sharp sense of humor elevate his words into something much more than that — something visceral and anchored in the real world, whether it’s in the past or the present.” (Emily Burnham, Bangor Daily News) “Morrison can be trusted to not waste your time; every poem is worth the read. He never missteps in his wistful yet frank look at the bars, motels, managers, band members and girl friends that make up the world of Boston rock. It's a perfect book for late night with a drink…” (Paul Lovell, Boston Groupie News) “By tapping into his tumultuous past, Morrison has created work that is not only technically sound, but viscerally engaging. His is no passive verse; it grabs you by the collar and demands your attention.” (Allen Adams, themaineedge.com) CLUBLAND is a powerful, compelling theme book that examines the world of blue-collar New England rock and roll from the musicians’ point of view. This... More > collection will leave you feeling energized, buoyed up, sucked dry, exhausted, hungover and hopeful in turn, and finally, feeling that “all in all it’s good to be alive/it’s good to try, it’s even good to fail.” (Alice Persons, Editor and Publisher, Moon Pie Press) Dave Morrison’s narrative universe is vividly cinematic: poem/portraits that are Rock-bottom genuine, totally direct, and disarmingly moving, packed with human attitude and artifact. He presents a cast of lonely figures filled with shy hope as they swing between the desire for the companionship of others and the frantic attempt to preserve their integrity. (Ted Bookey, Poet and Teacher) "…this collection rocks so hard: it's about the dogged persistence of doing what we all had no business doing, and yet continued to do ... on dance floors, in club bathrooms, in back seats, under tables. It might not have been beautiful, but it was true. And truth is beauty. And it rocks." (Sharon Mesmer, author of Virgin Formica and Annoying Diabetic Bitch)< Less
