1. A witty, often caustic remark or comeback.
2. A sudden shock, revelation, or turn of events.
From rows of umbrellas on an Italian beach to lines of commuters in the rain in Dublin, from the ghost of Apollinaire in the Moscow underground to a snow bound truck-stop in Pennsylvania, Alan Jude Moore’s fourth collection, is marked by a vision of the world as a cosmopolitan place and not just a globalized one. Zinger takes the reader through landscapes pockmarked by crisis and loss but ultimately resilient and alive with the hope people keep in each other.
Alan Jude Moore is from Dublin. His work has been widely published in Ireland, UK and USA as well as in translation in French, Italian, Russian & Turkish. His three previous collections of poetry, Black State Cars (2004), Lost Republics (2008) & Strasbourg (2010) are also published by Salmon Poetry.
