All of This Candy Belongs to Me Book Launch - at Tortuga Gallery!

Doors open 7 pm

To categorize Rich Boucher’s poetry as surreal, brutalist, confessional, dystopian, absurdist, etc. would by no means be inaccurate, but it would certainly be banal. I would prefer to say that he has mastered his native tongue to the extent that he can subvert English and its rules of grammar and syntax to his every poetic purpose, and that he is a dogged and savage critic of the deranged commercialism that menaces our very civilization – but although he frequently finds himself engulfed by the vile smoke of corporatist delusion, he can still hold up an undefiled vision of the joy – and the redemption – that beauty and love may bring to even the most warped and jaded victims of our horrid version of “the great society”.
