Hard Return


The Hard Return by Marcus McCann

2012, Paperback


The Hard Return is a broken list of metaphors for the human heart. Or it's a troubling elegy for a disposable world. Or it's something much less serious than that.

Alternating between loving descriptions of twenty-first-century excess and awkward social situations, Marcus McCann's poems are sincere and ironic, sad and half-joking, often in the same instant.
