Forked Tongue is Craig Sernotti's first poetry collection. Selected from offerings of the past 12 years, the poems in this collection move from dream-inspired absurdity to bitter reality, and open to the dark corners of our world and our minds.
"In Forked Tongue, Craig Sernotti skirts the sentimental and stares down the taboo. This collection of short pieces is at times surreal and at times nihilistically self-aware. Well crafted and honest, to be appropriately pessimistic without straying into self-pity is a hard fence to walk. Craig Sernotti does so with deft awareness of language and well administered injections of humor." - Outside Writers (full review with excerpts)
Craig Sernotti lives and writes and edits in New Jersey. He is the editor of The.
