Satisfying Clicking Sound is a book that's never afraid to make a show of itself. Jason Guriel gives us a quick-thinking colloquial style able to segue deftly from deadpan wit to deep emotion. Like the hard-to-master knuckleball he celebrates as being "less spun / than blown / out onto the air, / its course unknown," Guriel's poetry is equal parts art, talent, luck and mystery. Consistently rewarding, Satisfying Clicking Sound is a quicksilver performance from one of Canadian poetry's most distinctive new voices.
Jason Guriel is the author of several collections of poems and a book of essays. His writing has appeared in Slate, The Atlantic, and other magazines. He lives in Toronto.
