Stephen Andrew Palermo lives and works in Rochester, NY. His poems have appeared in the Cimarron Review, Slipstream, and the Dos Passos Review. This is his first full-length collection of poetry. You can visit him online at www.permanenceisrelative.com.Review:
"In his darkly brilliant debut collection, Permanence Is Relative, Stephen Andrew Palermo crosses necessary boundaries in order to confront the reader with the small tragedies that make up this thing called life. Capturing in startling detail, specifically, life in contemporary America. Reminiscent of poet, Ai's, brutally truthful work, Palermo turns the occurrences of his upstate New York hometown to crushing commentary. His is a poetry found behind the yellow police tape, in the bedroom, in K-mart, and adult bookstores. It is a poetry necessary to understanding the relative permanence of America, and it's written with a flawless ear." --James Thomas Stevens, author of Combing the Snakes from His Hair and A Bridge Dead in the Water
