- A child is born with the ears of a rabbit. A serial killer’s home becomes a tourist attraction. A hot-dog vendor awaits the Pope at Paralysis Beach. The Inspiration Cha-Cha is the first major collection of poetry by a longtime veteran of Toronto’s literary underground. The surreal world of Stuart Ross is populated by psychic surfers, Shakespearian apes, vengeful dogs, and conspiratorial potatoe—-all depicted in the language of overheard conversation. The Inspiration Cha-Cha is uproariously bleak, deceptively simple, and thoroughly danceable.
Stuart Ross is a writer and editor who lives in Toronto.
