As they explore love and life balanced on the edge of a city, in a mobile home perched precariously, metaphorically on the fringe of society, the poems in "The Trailer" dig past the daily detritus of the lover’s world of tin-walled hope and melamine dreams to reveal humour, beauty and joy.
Praise for this book
"With wit and memorable precision, 'The Trailer' takes a setting which is not familiar to poetry, adopts its argot, houses it within a firm structural base and elegantly chronicles the pain inherent in the concept of ‘success.’
"James Scoles spent a decade travelling before he began to write seriously. He can be savage or hilarious as the mood takes him ... bright and brash ... loving and tender ... powered by excellently odd dialogue and loving observations of snowbird trailer parks."
