   schema:description "David McGimpsey's fifth collection of poems takes to new levels the melding of the deeply personal and the culturally popular that drove his acclaimed book Sitcom (nominated for the A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry); this is confessional poetry as written by a chronic trickster and a committed liar. Written in part as an homage to the poetic idols of his youth, John Berryman and Robert Lowell, Li'l Bastard is a collection of 'chubby sonnets' (sixteen-line poems organized in eight twenty-poem sequences) that explore the poet's obsessions and engagements with America and Canada, popular culture, love and death, aging, baseball and beer, and Barnaby Jones. Adopting a wild array of tone and artistic strategies, from picaresque to fantasy, to observational humour and the simple song lyric, these poems map the poet's midlife crisis on a wild flight that touches down in Montreal, Chicago, Nashville, Texas, and Los Angeles. Poignant and often achingly funny, Li'l Bastard will no doubt cement McGimpsey's status as a beloved and ever-surprising original."@en ;
