Book Description

April 1 2009

Imaginary Maps reveals a city haunted by monsters, movie stars and jilted lovers; a city where hope and rage, sacred and carnal, mundane and surreal are uneasy neighbours. One with a downtown that swells with pleasures and pains too big for words, where every dead end is suffused with an unbidden kindness, 'an accidental choreography.'

5.0 out of 5 stars imaginitive, revealing, well-crafted poems Oct. 28 2009
First off, this book has a very beautiful cover. This is a great book, evoking some strange feelings in some strange ways. Some of the poems were bizarre, all of the poems were A, A+. My favourites were probably 'How Many Molecules,' 'Kissing Piranhas,' and the one where the guy is in a bar and realizes that all the other people in the bar are dead movie actors. And you really get the impression of the narrator going on a journey, and he's sorting out some heavy stuff that happened to him through metaphor. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this poetry Jan. 20 2010
Poems which span the spectrum of emotion from amusing & mysterious to poignant & startling lie within this very cool book cover. The reader is bound to relate to to some of these offerings. A few of my favorites: Patience, What Happened? and . . . Kissing Piranhas (!). Try it, you'll like it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginary Maps Oct. 18 2009
By David J. Hirshberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Darrell Epp's "Imaginary Maps" is an interesting journey off the beaten poetic path. The works are tight, economical, and are filled with the acute and recurrent visions and insights that only a life of the mind can afford... Mr. Epp is far too familiar with those little curiosities and quirks that inhabit and animate the recesses of our psychological makeup; the ones that provide us with the reason why we, say, choose to write an impassioned love-letter never to be sent, rather than drive 700 miles and show the object of your affection that you are not only serious about your feelings, you are also a little off your rocker, but in a good way. And it is these types of human frailty that only someone as introspective and observant as Mr. Epp can turn into meaningful, thought provoking, and moving works of art. "The Absence," "Patience," "Mea Culpa," Morning Miracle," and "Raymond Chandler" are all fine examples of Mr. Epp's ability to say on the surface something simply and plainly, and yet the interplay between the words and the voice(s) are rich, complex, and portray a mind truly alive and in communion with both himself and his surroundings. All said, Mr. Epp has given us a solid foundation for future points of departure; and we look forward to seeing when and where he shall take us next.
