Reckless Hope of Scoundrels, The

The Reckless Hope of Scoundrels

Fearless, irreverent, caroming between the world’s end and the most intimate of moments, Tony Burnett’s poetry collection, The Reckless Hope of Scoundrels, is a rip-roaring rodeo ride through a world tilting on its axis. This collection is filled with insightful music, both gentle and blunt. The book creates a place where “[l]iar’s words stink, mullet bloated and bursting / near brackish backwater on a red tide bay....” Burnett has an ear for the subtle notes that string each disparate piece together in a necklace of smooth sound. This collection, spanning three decades, is carved from Texas’ mesquite and bursts from the Lone Star’s thick clay with a secular, singing magic.

Burnett captures his characters with a descriptive prose and in-your-face dialog. These stories blend genres from a mystic surrealism to the grittiest of reality.
