Teeming with iconic images of suburban America in the 1950's, Killer Pavement Ahead engages the flourishing and withering of an urge to consumerism in a post-war baby boom culture. In these rich and evocative poems, poet Chuck Tripi tells tales of growing up absurd among tail fins and Your Hit Parade, home improvements and alcohol, tales of the tincture of time with its passages and epiphanies, insights, reconciliations and release.
The poems included in this poetry collection reveal an impressive intensity of feeling and spontaneous language. Profound sincerity and peculiarity of thought-this is the chief characteristic of these poems. The lyrical depth of these poems shows the poet’s supreme triumph.

Great book, great author. I'm surprised at its range--how it seems to go from simplicity to complexity exactly as a life might do, from the not quite jejune to the sophisticated, at its faithfulness, age to age--how it seems to track the years with a sense almost of necessity, with a restrained, precise logic. A must-read for all lovers of poetry.
