Whether misreading sixth grade pedagogical materials or offering visual schematics for reading Jacques Foucault and Judith Butler, Jon Paul Fiorentino's sixth poetry collection asks us to reconsider our engagement with received information -- but it does so with a wink in the detention room, a dodgeball to the gut during recess. Jon Paul Fiorentino is the author of the novel Stripmalling, and four poetry collections, including The Theory of the Loser Class. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Jon Paul Fiorentino now lives in Montreal, where he teaches writing at Concordia University and edits Matrix magazine.
