Summary

A poetic guide for the apocalypse, this poetry collection moves through technological disasters, environmental nightmares, and broken relationships to find love cast away at the end of days. The urban settings are counterbalanced with the idea of escape, deserted islands, and ocean solitudes. In this assemblage of playful, challenging, and beautiful poems, Jacqueline Turner uses the interrobanga question mark combined with an exclamation point, the excited questionas a symbol of our times to move the work through a host of genres. Like notes washed ashore in bottles, this book seeks an exchange and its scope is as vast as the question of how to survive modernity.
