Jump Scare

By Daniel Zomparelli

At once raw and skillful, painful and funny, personal and pervasive, the poems in Jump Scare dig deep into mental health, neurodivergence, grief, dreams, monstrosity, sexuality, pop culture, queer consumer culture, and the commodification of identity. This is a book that tackles isolation and loss head-on and thinks hard and with wry humour about how to position ourselves in this lonely, scary, compelling world.
