Overview

Hilarious, provocative poems by one of Canada's most notorious artists. Digressions of a Naked Party Girl is a wild collection of hysterical telegrams from the unfettered imagination of Sky Gilbert. There are no boundaries here: Sky tells all in poems that are personal, political, angry, and wickedly funny. Spanish drag queens, movie stars, one-night stands, cute anatomy students, and the inside of a despot's mind ? these scarlet confessions turn the reader into an instant therapist, confidante, and voyeur. Eclectic, topical, and always more than a cultural barometer, stylistically these poems range from the intense, break-neck story-telling of his recent novel Guilty, to pure surrealist rant. An ode to President Clinton sits beside a meditation on the color green. Consume it, devour it: you won't put it down.
