Inhaltsangabe: Knuckle Tattoos is Puma Perl's first full-length poetry collection, published by erbacce-press, a follow up to her award- winning chapbook, Belinda and Her Friends. Puma won the 2009 erbacce-press prize for poetry and this collection constitutes the reward. As described by Bonnie Rosenberg, " Perl's new collection of poems, "Knuckle Tattoos," chronicles her journey from self-destruction through the rocky road to recovery and self-realization. It is a gut wrenching, straight-talking, introspective, take-no-prisoners bumpy ride in which she looks at her life straight in both eyes and makes it blink. The title says it all. Knuckle tattoos are exposed, and "fisted letters don't hide meanings entwined in lies and butterflies." Published by erbacce-press, Liverpool, UK, 2010. Cover photo MCM Zone, author photo, Maria Cabrera, creative advisor, Lorenzo Tosado. Cover design, editing and typesetting, Alan Corkish.
Klappentext: Puma Perl is tough, funny, straight ahead and unforgettable. A survivor with a knockout punch and a heart of gold who claims she never wrote a love poem. But don't be fooled, Knuckle Tattoos is an epic love poem to the curb and back dressed in leopard print, sporting come fuck me pumps working the thin edge. Puma is jazz, punk, and the ghost of Ava Gardner. A subway angel who talks to the gods, Puma is a pearl of a girl and a poet who writes like her heart is on fire - S.A. Griffin, Editor, The Outlaw Book of American Poetry Puma Perl writes poems chiseled in granite with fingernails. Her poems ring like Leonard Cohen songs, in line after line of taut language, describing dark emotion and the illusion of structure. She dredges deep and scratches hard to find the crumbs of dazzle in a life of eviction, pain, and loss. The Francis Bacon of poetry, Perl uses language to paint images that maintain a surface clarity, but reverberate far deeper into the dark side of the psyche, without ever straying to cliche. The narrator never blinks at the world where innocence is not allowed, as she travels from Dali-esque illusion to deep desperation, and - finally - to the only true resolve: to somehow keep going. The fact that these poems exist is confirmation of what Bukowski called the goal of poetry: to show the beauty of the horror. Perl succeeds remarkably, with a collection that stands alone in its integrity, guts and revelations - Kat Georges, Founder/Editor, Three Rooms Press Puma Perl's Knuckle Tattoos is brilliant, perhaps even magnificent, and absolutely stellar. Perl is both poet and anti-poet whose craft is so strong you almost don't realize you are reading poetry. Funny, sad, angry curios; knuckle tattoos takes you 1000 places from a singular, unique voice. When I grow up I wanna write as well as Puma Perl - jck henry, writer
