About the book:

WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ALTER EGO? In this book, 21 contemporary poets give 21 unique answers; in the process, dissecting our relationships with the self and others.

These poems expose our most essential desires and griefs, hidden in the lining between who we are and who we appear to be. Vividly alive, they rise from the page with infectious energy, in prairie boots and fishnet gloves. The writers in this book are a virtuosic breed, spinning truth into glitter and scorpion milk, bending form and language to their whims.


Presenting the glorious cover of Alter Egos. Artwork by the unreasonably talented Bobby Parker.
